Emma Lawrence is not your average 13-year-old girl.  Besides growing up in a single parent home, she is a budding young astronaut, and one of an elite crew known as the Space Unicorns. When Commander Jerry Hooblabak from the 17th Company of  Oodenak appears at her window to commandeer her on a quest to save the universe from the evil Prometheus and his son Deucalion, an adventure like no other awaits. Will Emma, Benson (Emma’s dog) and Jerry be able to retrieve the mystical Sword of Hercules?  Will Prometheus and Deucalion be able to stop them?  Grab your space helmet and prepare for the greatest space adventure this side of Saturn.
