The Lost Tribes: Safe Harbor

Ben and April Webster never knew their parents were scientists on a secret mission until they disappeared. Now what awaits them and their friends is a nemesis so deadly that even Uncle Henry can’t protect them. In this science-fiction, adventure novel, the search continues as the group travels from the lost world of Atlantis, to outer space, to an IMAX theater in the Smithsonian. The bond of the diverse friendship is tested against many obstacles as the kids continue to fight to save a universe they are only just discovering. The story is embedded with science, history, sports, mystery, ethics, and culture. Plus there are location codes included that go to real places around the world.

Book Reviews
“A secret revealed, along with unsolved mysteries, will leave readers eager for the third installment … the solid character development, strong writing, and action will appeal to sci-fi and adventure-story readers alike. A great choice for reluctant readers as well as fans of Rick Riordan and the Artemis Fowl books.” —Kirkus Reviews

“A world where nothing is as it seems—a story that filled my head with wonder, when it wasn’t busy showing me something new about Earth’s diverse environments, cultures, and ways of life.” —Chris Tebbetts, author, Viking Pride

“Taylor-Butler cleverly weaves fascinating, futuristic technologies into modern references. This story defies its own sci-fi genre … it speaks of friendship that transcends race (human and all alien sorts.)” —Nora Raleigh Baskin, author, Anything but Typical
