Minrs by Kevin Sylvester
What a captivating story! For myself the setting of this narrative reminded me of the Big Nickel in Sudbury [Ontario, Canada]where one takes a long elevator ride way underground!
Once upon a time, mining an asteroid for resources would have been the stuff of science fiction lore….but this is no longer the case.
In “Minrs“, the combination of science, technology with the concept of mining in outer space, has created a realistic suspenseful, action-adventure tale, filled with as many twists, turns and bumps as experienced on a roller-coaster ride!
Action accelerates, as a communication blackout with Earth occurs and a chain of bizarre events unfolds simultaneously, catapulting those living on the asteroid into a race for survival!
Highly recommended for all middle grade fans!
