A Fall of Moondust


Humankind has made it to the moon and beyond. The story starts with tourists on the boat Selene, sailing the Sea of Thirst on the moon. It is not filled with water, but with dust, dust that acts somewhat like a fluid. Captain Pat Harris has made the trip many times before, and expects no surprises. Until a once in a million earthquake happens right under the Sea, and Selene sinks. Without anyway to reach the outside world, and without any visible traces of what happened to them, will they be saved? And how?

This story is a lot more suspenseful and even though I had an inkling on how it would end, I couldn’t put the book down. A very entertaining read. Four out of five stars.
