The Complete Alwas Cycle UNCUT!
It’s 2082. Ten thousand years have passed since the last great race on the remote planet of Oban. Now the time has come for the pilots of the galaxy to compete in a new race, and Earth is more than ready with its spectacular Whizzing Arrow star-racer. Built and maintained by racing legend Don Wei’s team of engineers and mechanics, the Whizzing Arrow has become the Earth’s only hope against annihilation by the greatest foe the world has ever seen—the menacing Crog Imperium.
There’s just one problem: Once he arrives on the distant planet of Alwas for the competition, Wei’s top pilot is forced into early retirement, and the controls of the Whizzing Arrow are placed into the inexperienced hands of “Molly,” a 15-year-old racing prodigy!
