About the Book

Star Wars meets Ridley Pearson’s Kingdom Keepers in this high-stakes intergalactic adventure!

The Fate of Earth is the final installment in an action-packed series for tweens that’s perfect for fans of Eoin Colfer and Lisa McMann, and that Soman Chainani called “a blockbuster mix of thrills and adrenaline.”

Benny Love and the Moon Platoon have befriended a small crew of peaceful Alpha Maraudi aliens, and they’ve decided to work together to end the war between humans and the aliens without violence.

But while they’re forming a plan, an Alpha Maraudi ship is preparing to strike a deadly blow on Earth. If the Moon Platoon can’t stop the attack, life as they knew it on Earth will be destroyed, and Benny and his friends will be stranded in space—forever.
