Cosmic Storm (Galahad #5)
Just a year into their mission, the crew of Galahad has endured a sabotage attempt, alien encounters, and a dangerous passage through an asteroid belt. Now, as unpredictable waves of radiation threaten the very survival of the ship, Council leader Triana has disappeared. Not knowing if she is alive or dead, the crew must hold an election to replace her. Council member Ga
Anyway, the book was WAY better then the one before. I’m giving it a 4.5 star. And I got to say, I feel sorry for Gap tha...more
First off, let me be clear to all of our followers that this is the 5th in a series. I have never actually read books 1-3 (I whole-heartedly admitted this when I read the 4th book. Check out my review of that novel, The Dark Zone, here). Now, don't get me wrong, I definitely plan on reading books 1-3, but the best part about all of this, is that you don't really have to. The author, Dom Testa, d...more
When their Council Leader Triana disappears, the crew is faced with choosing a new one to take her place. Gap seems to be the obvious choice, being next in line and all but when an unlikely candidate is offered up, the balance of power begins to tilt. Add to that the unexplained flashes...more
This cover is more or less exactly the same as the other GALAHAD covers. Personally, I see nothing wrong with that.

I almost find it more comforting then necessary for all of the book's covers to resemble each other. Also, I love trying to decid...more
This is the only book I wasn't delighted with. Here is my beef: I wanted a dual storyline giving us more detail on what Triana sees when she goes through the wormhole. I know we'll get more info. from book #5, but it wasn't enough. However, as an author, I can see why we didn't find out anything. Testa is keeping the perspective of the journey as if the reader is in the spaceship so getting Triana's story would not have accomplished that purpose. BUT, as a reader myself, I wanted t...more
The leader of the group is gone, rifts among the crew are growing larger, Merit, resident mutineer, is back, and there's an election between two of the crew to take over Triana's position for now.
The ship is undergoing some serious problems with its hull, its shield keeps dropping letting radiation in and no one is sure why. And there seems to be a wormhole.
It's been fun to follow the 251 teens as they travel through space to their new home - I can hardly wait to see what happens in the 6th book.
At an early age Dom rec...more
