The Moon's Last Fortress(2014)
(The first book in the Keys To Terra series)
A novel by Christopher Bulis
Tom Mallory (aged 14 and self-admittedly hopelessly infatuated) should have known better when the object of his desire, brilliant and beautiful Amber Cavendish, unexpectedly invited him to write an article for their school newspaper on her famous scientist father's latest invention. She warned Tom it might involve a little travel, but he had no idea how far! Soon they are lost in an alternate reality confronting the legacy of an ancient conflict with a dark alien intelligence that laid to waste an entire solar system. If that was not enough to worry about, Tom still has Amber's eccentric father and a possible rival for her affections to contend with. Is the only way to convince Amber that he is more mature than she believes by being a hero, which he most definitely is not? Can all the Science Fiction he's read possibly help him survive? And he's still got homework to finish by Monday...
