Enter a new frontier …
“An empty apartment, a missing family, that’s
creepy. But this is like finding a military base with no one on it. Fighters
and tanks idling on the runway with no drivers. This is bad juju. Something
wrong happened here. What you should do is tell everyone to leave.”
The gates have opened the way
to a thousand new worlds and the rush to colonize has begun. Settlers looking
for a new life stream out from humanity’s home planets. Ilus, the first human
colony on this vast new frontier, is being born in blood and fire.
Independent settlers stand
against the overwhelming power of a corporate colony ship with only their
determination, courage, and the skills learned in the long wars of home.
Innocent scientists are slaughtered as they try to survey a new and alien
world. The struggle on Ilus threatens to spread all the way back to Earth.
James Holden and the crew of
his one small ship are sent to make peace in the midst of war and sense in the
midst of chaos. But the more he looks at it, the more Holden thinks the mission
was meant to fail.
And the whispers of a dead
man remind him that the great galactic civilization that once stood on this
land is gone. And that something killed it. Download and start listening now!
