The Jupiter Pirates: Hunt for Hydra by Jason Fry
Publication Date: November 11th, 2014
Publisher: HarperCollins
Genre: Action/Adventure
Ages: 8-12

Treasure Island meets Battlestar Galactica in book one of the swashbuckling sci-fi adventure series SLJ called "space opera in the classic style" in a starred review, from New York Times bestselling author Jason Fry.

The relationship between Tycho Hashoone, his twin sister, Yana, and their older brother, Carlo, isn't your average sibling rivalry. They might be crew members together aboard the Shadow Comet, but only one of them can be the next ship captain. So when the Hashoones find themselves in the midst of a dangerous conspiracy--one that will pit them against space pirates, Earth diplomats, and even treachery from within the family--each sibling is desperate to prove his or her worth. The only trouble is, if they don't work together, none of them may make it out alive.

Perfect for fans of fantasy adventures like Ranger's Apprentice and such space-age epics as Star Wars, The Jupiter Pirates: Hunt for the Hydra is a wholly original saga about a galaxy on the brink of war and one unforgettable family caught in the cross fire.

Don't miss the action-packed sequel, Curse of the Iris.

The Hashoones are a tight-knit clan that ply the ebon void beyond the orbit of Mars and follow their noble family tradition as space privateers (NOT pirates, mind you... well, maybe Grandfather Huff). They prey upon spaceships of those snooty jerks from Earth who try to opress the former colonists of the proud Jovian Union. It's a dangerous life out there and the Hashoon kids know that sticking to shipboard discipline and family responsibilities can keep them from turning into a big glowing cloud or trying to breath in the vacuum. Vividly imagined life in outer space and colorful characters take you on an edge-of-your-seat adventure while also including very digestible moral instuction and useful information. There is even a "Spacer's Lexicon" filled with terms mainly taken from actual maritime lore!
