As young men, Jules Verne and Andre Nemo pledged to experience a world of adventures together but fate set them on two different paths. Nemo becomes an adventurer, traveling to fantastic places and encountering hidden civilizations and mythical creatures, while Verne builds a reputation chronicling his friend's exploits. The author of Dune: House Corrino (with Brian Herbert) pays tribute to one of the genre's founding fathers in a fast-paced sf fantasy reminiscent of the early pulp stories. Romance, adventure, and a new look at Verne's classic novels make this a strong addition to most sf collections.

Looking for a book you and your young teens will enjoy. Give this one a try. Reads very much like a 1950/1960 Science Fiction movie.
