Invisible Sun (Hardcover)
Not currently shipping from publisher – Subject to future availability
You don't want to mess with Durango.
He left his crew behind.
His father is dead.
And he's going to prove himself to Vienne,
even if he dies trying.
As he races through flood
and fire and across a violent
and terrifying planet,
there's a 97% chance he's
going to die trying.
But who's counting.
