Description

“We can’t avoid the moon. We’re inside the atmosphere! We’re going all the way down!”

The ozone layer has been destroyed and Earth is at risk. The only hope for human survival is to find the precious liquid telotion. When heated, telotion creates huge amounts of ozone. Raki and Tando are on a mission to find a source of the rare substance when they crash land on an unknown planet. What are the mysterious blue creatures they discover there? And why have they taken over Tando’s mind? Raki will face the biggest challenge of his life in his quest to find out and save them both.
