This starts out with the story of King Midas and his wish to turn everything he touches to gold. Of course that wish goes sideways and he turns the entire earth and everything on it to gold. Fast forward hundreds of years into the future when the story and location of Earth have been erased from the records by the Federation. Three young rebels learn of its location and are determined to find the weapon they can use against the Federation. Of course the Federation is not going to let them get away with that. Everyone is very surprised to find the weapon is a man and not a machine. Havoc will be wrecked.
This was a different mix of mythology and science fiction. I enjoyed the story and the twist on the Midas tale. The real meat of this story was the three rebel characters. I really enjoyed their interactions but wish there would have been more backstory to them. We only really get a bit of backstory for the dinosaur. The age for this one is a bit vague but some of the themes make me think middle school.
