Publisher's Summary

Titan. Sixth moon of Saturn. A gleaming jewel of natural resources, ripe for harvesting by the first private space company to stake a claim. 

Diamond Aerospace launches a ship with an experimental engine that will get a crew to Titan in five months. Their mission is to lay the groundwork for a permanent orbital research station, one that will be the future base of operations for activity on that distant moon. 

Shortly after launch, a devastating malfunction forces the crew to make a choice: continue to Titan, or go back home. As the truth about their mission unravels, one thing is clear: someone on Earth knew about the system flaw and covered it up. 

Between the critical situation in space and the corporate politics on Earth, humanity's first voyage beyond Mars quickly turns into a relentless struggle for survival. Yet surviving the journey isn't the crew's only concern. Even if they make it to Titan, they will face another problem. Something is already there.

YA sci-fi

I bought this book before any reviews were posted. Always a gamble. This is a descent story but not very deep. I get a made for TV movie vib. I’m not downing the story. It’s just not as sophisticated as my usual choices. Btw it’s completely PG. Nothing graphic.

Mission One

Extremely wordy. Slow to develop. Tedious. Took quite a few chapters to get past the sleezy, self centered, neuvo riche guy to the launch. I'm not sure the launch ever happened, I never got that far. Not good sci-fi as far as I'm concerned.
