The Vitality Code (Daren Saner #2)
A second thrilling adventure from the pen of talented new young author, Michael Oehley.
Daren Sáner and his friends take a forbidden jaunt in the space pods and bring back a deadly virus to
the spaceship. Daren makes a miraculous recovery but his friends remain in a coma … and the plague
begins to spread through the ship. Daren uses the power of the Jewel of Súperia to go back to the
ancient city of Periapólí — and finds that his comatose friends are there with him.
Adarenas (Daren’s alter-ego) and his friends from the orphanage team up in an attempt to solve the
riddle of the Vitality Code in order to save the starship. It involves a long journey and an exciting battle, alongside the Circle of Twelve who are bravely trying to withstand the onslaught of the Ev-Enor Queen and her soldiers. They eventually reign supreme and Daren solves the riddle of the Vitality Code.
