The Galahad Legacy Scavenger Hunt Blog Tour & Giveaway

Today we are thrilled to be a part of Dom Testa’s The Galahad Legacy Scavenger Hunt blog tour, celebrating the release of the sixth and final book in Galahad Series. The series follows 251 teens as they set out for the stars – humanity’s last ditch hope after a rogue comet’s tail permeated Earth’s atmosphere, proving deadly for anyone over the age of eighteen. For two years, young adults on Earth have trained for their mission to a distant star to continue the human race, and in The Galahad Legacy, their mission comes to a dramatic final close.

To celebrate the release of the book, we are hosting the 10th excerpt on the official blog tour. Check it out below!

Topping them all was the startling return of Triana. Fight as he might to keep his mind elsewhere, the image of her slumped in the cockpit of the pod muscled its way back to the fore. Where had she been? What had happened to her on the other side of the wormhole? What was that…thing that sheโ€™d brought back?

Or had it brought her back?

And, most importantly, had his connection with the alien beings known as the Cassini created what Lita described as a โ€œbeaconโ€ to guide Triana back to Galahad? How should he feel about that, when it was never his original intent?

About the Tour:

Please visit YA Bound for the next excerpt from the first chapter of The Galahad Legacy. You can check out all the stops on the tour HERE. For more about the tour and the series, check out the official post (including video) HERE.

We are giving away a full set of all six books in the Galahad series – from The Comet’s Curse all the way through The Galahad Legacy! The contest is open to addresses in the US only, and will run until Saturday March 24 at 11:59 PST.

    One of Faves is not a movie, but I love Battlestar Galactica, old and new versions!

    Not sure this counts as really a traveling book, but Ender’s Game is my favorite sci-fi novel ever!

  • Helen

    S.L. Viehl’s Stardoc series!

    Right now, I’m really into The Young Wizards series. The first book in it was published in the 1980’s and the last won’t be published until next year!

    But anyway. I don’t know if that is my favorite per se, but it is one I am currently enjoying greatly.

  • Lili

    My favorite is Stark Trek Voyager.

  • Helen
    March 16, 2012 at 7:51 am

    Firefly, of course, though Voyager is a close second.

    While I loved the tv series, Firefly, My current favorite space traveling novel series is The Trader Tales by Nathan Lowell. The first book, Quarter Share is great! ๐Ÿ˜€

    I gotta go with Star Wars Episodes IV-VI (the original trilogy) or the 2009 Star Trek movie directed by J.J. Abrams. I refuse to acknowledge Star Wars Episodes I-III as canon and the Star Trek reboot did a great job introducing new viewers to the universe.

  • Lexie Cenni

    TV Show: Firefly…or Star Trek Deep Space Nine. With a nod to Space Cases just because.

    Book: Calling B for Butterfly by Louise Lawrence or Acorna by Anne McCaffrey and Margaret Ball. Depends on my mood, but I love them both to pieces.

    I love all the Sirantha Jax books by Ann Aguirre.

  • Beth

    Definitely Doctor Who! Love the show and the books!

    I love sci-fi books, especially Across the Universe (Revis), Starship Academy (Nick James), and A Long, Long Sleep (Anna Sheehan). A Long Long Sleep doesn’t really take place in space, but there are statements made about galactic colonies on other planets.

  • Serena

    Well, they don’t necessarily travel a lot, but Ender’s Game is far and away my favorite space book. Would love a copy of these books.

  • Jennifer @ A Librarian's Library

    I love the Star Wars movies and the New Star Trek.

    And I don’t know if you would consider this book a space traveling sci-fi, but I just love A Wrinkle in Time. =)

    To watch – Firefly or Serenity

    To read (over and over again) – the Miles Naismith Vorkosigan series by Lois McMaster Bujold.

  • Becky

    My all time favorite space traveling book is Alexei Panshin’s Rite of Passage.

    For media, Firefly, definitely.

    There are lots of TV about space travel I LOVE, including Doctor Who, Stargate Universe, and Firefly. But movies? Serenity, and 2001: A Space Odyssey.
    And I can’t even think of any books right now.

  • Heidi

    Doctor Who is my favorite series of all time! I also love Firefly, Star Trek, and Battlestar Gallactica.

    I loved Across the Universe. It was really good. I can’t wait to read this book.

  • Amanda

    My favorite is The Snow Queen by Joan D. Vinge. It was a book I stumbled on when looking for retellings of fairytales, and I’ve been re-reading it now for years. Love her world and character building, and the space travel element came as a complete surprise my first time through.

  • Dj Spiller

    Ohh, there a few good ones. But I’ll have to go with the series I just read, Across the Universe (and the second book A Million Suns). Not only are the plot and writing amazing but titles come from Beatles’ songs. I mean, come one. It’s fantastic. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Deb B.
    March 16, 2012 at 8:49 pm

    Definitely Battlestar Galactica although Star Wars is a close second.

  • Megan

    The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy Trilogy is by far my favorite for books, and I love Star Wars.

  • Bee

    I’m very partial to Galaxy Quest, but I also love Serenity : ) Bookwise, I liked Accross the Universe, but I’ve not read too many others.

  • azteclady
    March 17, 2012 at 8:30 am

    Hmmm…eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeenteresting, these ๐Ÿ˜€

    But so many choices, I don’t think I can name one favorite. Fairly recently, Ann Aguirre’s Grimspace/Jax novels knock my socks off, but my fascination with stories set in space actually started with Asimov’s robot stories. And I’m sure very few can forget 2001.

  • Audra Holtwick

    Serenity, Star Trek -all of them, and Doctor Who

  • Annie
    March 18, 2012 at 10:32 am

    Um, maybe Silver SHark by Ilona Andrews? Don’t know if it counts completely (I think there could be a part that’s “travelling in space”, but it’s definitely good! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Becky C

    My favorite series is Star Trek!!! This looks like a great series.

    Oooh that’s a hard one. If we’re going for movie, I have to say SERENITY. Choosing between DOCTOR WHO and FIREFLY for a favorite space traveling TV show would be too difficult!

  • Julie Witt

    My favorite show is a tie between Firefly/Serenity and Doctor Who!! My favorite book is Across the Universe, which I just read and loved!!

  • dellan

    Probably any Heinlein, the Star Wars movies, Alien

  • Gemma
    March 20, 2012 at 8:32 pm

    Firefly/Serenity for me! But Battlestar Galactica and Cowboy Bebop are really really close ties!

    Spaceballs, of course.
