Synopsis - The Mission follows a group of mercenaries who believed they were taking a dying scientist to the planet Valdorian in search of a cure. Under advisement from Senator Tyrell and against his better judgement, the commander of the Undead agrees to take the youngest member of his mercenaries on the mission to the distant world. Mack gives fourteen year old Darkblood the task of protecting and transporting Victor Magnus, a scientist who is dying as a result of an accident in his lab. It is only when they reach Valdorian, the planet's only city, that Darkblood discovers the truth behind their mission.
Review - A good, light adventure story that is quick and easy to read. A sound plot, good characters, the book moves along at a fast pace taking the reader on a journey. It has all the elements of good and bad, a little hint of romance, failure and success, everything to entertain in this sci-fi adventure. 3*
