Set in the world of celebrated space trading game ELITE: DANGEROUS, Gideon Defoe - bestselling author of the PIRATES series of books, and the accompanying Aardman film - gives us a hilarious adventure in deepest space.
Set in the world of bestselling computer game ELITE, and launched to tie in with the latest version, ELITE: DANGEROUS - a game almost 20 years in the making. One of three very distinct - but subtly linked - novels written by major authors who are fans of the game, this novel will be a must-buy not only the 25,000+ people who funded the new game on kickstarter, but also for all of those fans of the original game.
On what might be the worst planet in the universe, a young man dreams of the stars. Adventure! Lasers! Women! And the ultimate goal - to become Elite!
Unfortunately, Misha has to do his chores first. And learn how to talk to Phoebe, the beautiful customs officer. And leave the planet.
But the death of a famous author unexpectedly drags Misha and Phoebe into a system-wide conspiracy, complete with smuggling, international art thieves, multi-system corporations, canapes and exploding pigs. This is Misha's chance to prove he has what it takes!
After all, surely anyone can be Elite if they dream...
