Review: Crater Trueblood and the Lunar Rescue Company

Instead of my typical Around the Web post for Wednesday, here’s a new review from Olivia, my resident young adult reviewer! This book fits into an adult fiction genre, but it is acceptable for young adult readers.

Crater Trueblood and the Lunar Rescue Company by Homer Hickam is science fiction. It the third in a series called the Helium-3 series. This series is about Crater, a normal helium-3 miner on the moon who really just wants to stick to his mining job. But now there is a war and Crater must help fight it.

Homer Hickam is very good at combining real science with his fiction. I love his writing style. The character development throughout this book is fascinating. The characters are not just characters in a book, they come to life.

I don’t have any real cons, but I did notice that you definitely have to read the previous two books to understand this one. But other than that, the book was fantastic!

I recommend this book for ages thirteen through adult.

This book was sent to us by Book Look in exchange for an honest review.


I am a homeschooling preacher's wife and managing editor for the Well Planned Gal. But, I also love to write just for the fun of it. I also process best through writing, and my thoughts tend to flow from things I learn through the Bible, interacting with my family, and moving through life in general. Thanks for joining me in my not quite ordinary journey.

What are your thoughts? I'd love to hear from you!
