- Sergeant Samuel Morgan Campbell had been in plenty of tight spots before, but nothing like this. It had happened in a few terrifying seconds: the star ship he and his crew traveled on, the Outward Initiative, shattered to pieces before their eyes and disappeared, leaving them stranded in the endless night of deep space on Lifeboat LS-88—all systems dead, light-years from any known colony.
- Somehow, Sergeant Campbell and his crew of half-trained children—ranging from freshly graduated Xander Bird down to eight-year-old Francisco—have to repair systems with no tools, navigate with no computers, and—if they could find a planet they could live on—land a shuttle whose controls were more than half-destroyed.
- And if they manage all of that, then the real challenge begins; the only planet in range has secrets that even Sergeant Campbell cannot imagine!

“It’s designed as YA — that’s fine, although I couldn’t help but think that the neat match-up of the number and ages of boys who arrived in Odyssey to the number of girls who arrived in Castaway Planet was a bit too fortuitous. That said, I’m buying the pair of them in hard cover for the middle school where I volunteer (for myself, I got them on my Kindle), to go along with Dave Freer’s YA books, Weber and Lindskold’s Stephanie Harrington set, and other efforts I make to get a new generation to read science fiction.” By Virginia E. Demarce
“This is a great read, but seems a little short. The first 3 book in this series were about the right length and seemed to be written in a different style, and were better. However, this book and it’s predecessor are still worth a read and entitled to 5 stars.” By John Cooley
