Publisher Description

A surprising and gripping sci-fi thriller with a killer twist

The daughter of two astronauts, Romy Silvers is no stranger to life in space. But she never knew how isolating the universe could be until her parents’ tragic deaths left her alone on the Infinity, a spaceship speeding away from Earth.

Romy tries to make the best of her lonely situation, but with only brief messages from her therapist on Earth to keep her company, she can’t help but feel like something is missing. It seems like a dream come true when NASA alerts her that another ship, the Eternity, will be joining the Infinity.

Romy begins exchanging messages with J, the captain of the Eternity, and their friendship breathes new life into her world. But as the Eternity gets closer, Romy learns there’s more to J’s mission than she could have imagined. And suddenly, there are worse things than being alone….

"I've never read space horror before but I really enjoyed this one. I needed a good half hour just sitting there once I'd finished the audiobook, working through my emotions. I'd loge to listen to more by this author and narrator."

— JWM (4 out of 5 stars)


  • “Lauren Ezzo’s emotionally charged narration…lets Romy’s mercurial moods infect the listener—the pain of her losses, the quickened speech and desperate whine of her occasional panic in the vastness of space, and the sweet glee of a girl getting to know a boy. As complications arise, Ezzo rockets toward the heart-stopping conclusion. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”

    — Bookseller
  • “As much psychological thriller as space odyssey…Focus on the mental pressures is intriguing. For fans of speculative fiction with lots of plot twists.”

    — Kirkus Reviews
  • “Shocking and brutal…The sinister realism of Romy’s situation is as terrifying as it is gripping, and I was rooting for her from beginning to end.”

    — Alice Oseman, author of Radio Silence
  • “A tense, psychological thriller that will leave you gasping for air.”
