Voyagers #3: Omega Rising by Patrick Carman

Omega Rising (Voyagers #3)My name is Carly. Our Alpha team must now travel to a planet that is totally covered in water, as we search for the next element in an energy source that will save Earth. The planet has huge monsters roaming the ocean, and there are pirates searching for victims on its surface. We've been instructed to avoid all life forms, but that's easier said than done. We're immediately terrorized by a sixty-foot raptor and then ravaged by creatures that can eat through metal! We just want to stay alive! Now, Aqua Gens have hidden us aboard their ship, and we've lost our watercrafts and supplies. I have no idea how we'll find the element... or how we'll get off the planet and find our way home.

You need to read the previous books in the series, especially the first one. All of the books are fast-paced, full of action, and will quickly grab your interest. An interesting aspect of this series is the creation of the Omega crew. These teens were not chosen for the mission but were secretly joined to compete with the Alpha crew. However as the series goes on, each crew is trying to get the elements first, but it's obvious the two crews need each other to survive. The Omega ship is especially interesting. The crew has problems with the leadership, the ship is not well-constructed, and a "time bomb" is locked away deep inside the ship. It seems to be a matter of time before disaster strikes this crew. Readers can visit a website with activities and games to go along with the book. I really recommend you give this series a shot.
