If you know this highly renowned series very well, I reckon you had read the first book already and know that this book is about the chronicles of the Hashoone family, which takes place in outer space (solar system) in the far future, where space travel to other planets is possible.
This book is the 2nd of the Jupiter Pirates blockbuster series! In this book, the author goes through events of the Hashoone’s past, particularly about Johanne Hashoone, when they discover a sitting duck. In the floating vehicle, they find a dead crew…
The Hashoones are privateers and they own a letter of marque under the Jovian Union, which allows them to seize any ship which does not fly their colors. Their ship is called ‘Shadow Comet’. However, for that instance, there is nothing they can seize as everything was destroyed. Thus, they identify the dead captain and go to the captain’s home planet to deliver the bad news.
Unfortunately, during their conversation during with the captain’s family, the captain’s mother mocks them and accuses them of stealing captain Lumbaba’s prize, the Iris Cache, which was something forgotten in family history.
The Iris Cache is a hidden treasure which some say is cursed, or are protected by dangerous creatures. The Collective, an old organization which consisted of Shadow Comet and other ships, have been tasked to find the great prize, which led to misunderstandings and thus was deemed to be never found by Johannes and his crew.
But when Tycho, the youngest of the Hashoones, gets more clues than he bargained for, it is a race between 3 factions, the Securtitat, Jovian Union and Ice Wolves to get the greatest fortune of anyone’s life as the Hashoones go back in time to learn about their dirty family history and the truth of Tycho’s great-grandfather, Johannes, which is very startling…
And to make matters worse, the Ice Wolves have Saturn’s support!
So will they find the treasure and defeat the Ice Wolves? You got to read the book.
