From Courtney Alameda, this thrilling, YA sci-fi horror and space adventure will be sure to stay with readers long after the last pages.

Lost to time, Tuck Morgan and his crew have slept in stasis aboard the USS John Muir for centuries. Their ship harbors a chunk of Earth, which unbeknownst to them, is the last hope for the failing human race.

Laura Cruz is a shipraider searching the galaxy for the history that was scattered to the stars. Once her family locates the John Muir and its precious cargo, they are certain human civilization is saved.

When Tuck's and Laura’s worlds collide—literally—the two teens must outwit their enemies, evade brutal monsters that kill with sound, and work together to save the John Muir . . . and the whole human race.

Find out if they succeed in Pitch Dark, a captivating young adult thriller from the author of Shutter.

"In this intense sci-fi thriller, Alameda poses the question: Is the human species worthy of being saved? Two teen protagonists provide the first-person play-by-play in alternating chapters. . . . A must-have sci-fi read that teens won’t be able to put down." —School Library Journal

"Teens who like their science fiction served with a large dose of suspense and horror, and a bit of a love story tossed in, will eagerly devour this title." —VOYA
