The Galahad Series
The Comet's Curse (Book 1) - From School Library Journal: More than 200 years in the future, Comet Bhaktul hurtles past Earth, leaving a deadly contagion in its wake. Bhaktul's disease threatens to annihilate the human race within a decade, but the mysterious illness only affects adults. Under Project Galahad, 251 teens are sent on a mission to reach a habitable planet free of Bhaktul's contamination. As Galahad enters space, the young people must deal with the intense pressure of saving humankind and the sadness of leaving their families behind. Sixteen-year-old Triana, the ship's commander, must manage daily operations while also dealing with her father's recent death. Matters escalate when, less than a week out, one of the teens spots an adult onboard, a potential Bhaktul carrier.Part space opera, part mystery, the story draws readers in from the beginning with well-placed hooks, plenty of suspense, and a strong premise.
The Web of Titan (Book 2) - From Amazon.com: After triumphing over a saboteur bent on destroying Galahad, Triana and her Council are eager to avoid any further complications. But as Galahad swings around the ringed planet Saturn, they encounter a mysterious metal pod orbiting the moon of Titan. The teens prepare to bring the pod and its contents aboard, only to be faced with a another crisis: an illness that is beyond their medical experience. Dozens of crew members fall into a comatose state, only to awaken with strangely glowing eyes. To make matters worse, the systems of Galahad begin to fail. With time running out, can Triana and her shipmates escape the Web of Titan?
From Kirkus: Both a mystery and an adventure, combining a solid cast of characters with humor, pathos, growing pains and just a hint of romance.
From Bookends: A high-tension blend of hard science fiction and intriguing thriller... This is a MUST purchase for teen collections everywhere!
The Cassini Code (Book 3) - From Amazon.com: The teenage crew of Galahad has survived their first encounter with an alien race. Though shaken by the power of The Cassini, Triana and her Council are determined to continue their mission. But some of the crew donâ€™t agree. Led by the charismatic Merit Simms, a small group of crew members begins lobbying for a return to Earthâ€”just as the ship enters the Kuiper Belt, the deadly minefield of asteroids that surrounds the solar system.
As Galahad dodges a storm of asteroids, Triana finds herself dealing with an increasingly hostile crew. Even some members of the Council are beginning to listen to Meritâ€™s arguments. Can Triana find a way to prevent a mutiny aboard Galahad, and lead her crew to safety?
From Knight Reader: I have found a new series to love.

But just as they exit the belt, they are confronted by their next challenge: a group of incredibly fast and manoeuvrable organisms waiting in their path - like vultures. With no way of knowing if the organisms are friends or foes, Triana and her Council decide to push forward, setting into motion a chain of events that will lead to the opening of a wormhole (a shortcut across space and time), and the first death aboard Galahad.
