Hollow Moon (Hollow Moon #1) Read & Download æ 109 A kidnapping a school band competition and an electric cat that eats everything in sight Join sparky young heroine Ravana O'Brien in a fast paced and witty science fiction mystery of interstellar intrigue Having fled civil war sixteen light years away Ravana and her father now live i. Ravena O Brien lives on a worldship called the Dandridge Cole which was carved out of the center of a small moon sized asteroid and then transported over many generations to it s new home orbiting a planet in an adjacent solar system One hundred years past the original exodus a small contingent of eccentric free thinkers still calls the hollow moon its home and lives peacefully away from the influence and intrigues of the now corporatized other settled planetsShe s a resourceful but otherwise ordinary girl who studies engineering sometimes helps her father pilot his independently owned spaceship and has a free thinking electronic cat named Jones who gets into mischief and gets her into mischief along with itThen Ravena witnesses one of the residents of the hollow moon get kidnapped the young heir to one of the corporatized planets whose mother fled with him to the hollow moon to evade those who would use the young Raj Ravena and her father go in search of the missing Raj and in the process meet some new friends fellow 15 year olds on their way to a music competition some bad guys and some unlikely allies along with aliensThis is a nice space hopping adventure which blends a love of science fiction with a good old fashioned coming of age adventure story Ravena is naturally resourceful and uses her head but it s not overly done or unrealistic for the most part we ARE talking science fiction here The science seemed to me to be relatively sound with occasional hints of real life scientific principals just enough to pepper the story not so much as to make the pacing slow downOne nice detail is Ravena s mother was of India descent while some of the colonized worlds carry either a heavy Chinese or Indian colonization influence so this wasn t your usual white girl in space story but neither was the influence overdone think Firefly and Serenity it s a nice subtle addition to the worldbuildingI read this and now it s off to my 13 year old to read as well A fun planet hopping read to whet a Young Adult s appetite for something besides sparkly vampires

Steph Bennion the author of Hollow Moon knows how to write an interesting blurb Her book is a tale of A kidnapping a school band competition and an electric cat that eats everything in sight Targeted at the YA market the story is of Ravana O Brien resident of the asteroid spaceship Dandridge Cole which is in orbit around Barnard s Star The inhabitants live inside the hollowed up asteroid which is spun to produce artificial gravity Chapter 1 starts with Ravana trying to retrieve her electronic cat and in the process witnessing a kidnappingChapter 2 takes place on the planet Ascension also orbiting Barnard s Star and highlights the exploits of the local high school band all three of them while on a field trip There they discover the spaceship used in the kidnapping in Chapter 1 and eventually they meet up with Ravana Hijinks ensue taking place on several planets in two star systemHollow Moon is a fast paced book full of action Characters don t seem to spend much time catching their breath between adventures of which there are a number The tone of the novel is Boys and Girls Own Adventure with than a touch of British understatement fitting for a British author Despite the death defying nature of some of these adventures the book as a whole works due to the speed of events I will also say that Ms Bennion s teenagers are very believable and generally engagingThe book is not without its flaws however First I found the omniscient point of view a bit jarring There s nothing wrong with omniscient per se but if you re going to use it it needs to be established firmly at the start of the book Second and of a personal pet peeve are the subject of aliens in science fiction Basically if you have aliens in your story you should either establish fairly early on that aliens exist and are known or the story needs to be about the discovery of the aliens Hollow Moon doesn t follow either of those conventions rather it tosses the aliens into the mix somewhat in the middleThe last flaw is somewhat serious Without giving too much away you can t hide forever in a space ship Sooner or later every part of the ship will be visited by the crew Critical areas and power supply is always critical will be visited often and carefully monitored Having said all of that I found Hollow Moon a very enjoyable read Ms Bennion spent a good deal of time thinking about how her future world came to be which is reflected in the names of planets and the cultures on them Her characters are believable and interesting and I look forward to from her
