Intergalactic Exterminators, Inc
Also available at
After exploring his grandparents’ bookstore, Russ finds a mysterious stone that attracts an alien predator and encounters Intergalactic Exterminators who insist he join their team—or else.
Finding work is easy. Staying alive is a little bit harder.
When Russ Wesley finds an unusual artifact in his grandfather’s collection of rare antiquities, the last thing he expects is for it to draw the attention of a ferocious alien from a distant planet. Equally surprising is the adventurous team of intergalactic exterminators dispatched to deal with the alien threat. They’re a little wild, and a little reckless. Worse yet, they’re so impressed with Russ’s marksmanship that they insist he join their squad . . . whether he wants to or not.
