The award-winning author of Timescape and Eater returns with a gripping new novel set in the same dynamic future as his wildly popular The Martian Race.
Their historic mission to Mars made Julia and Victor
the most famous astronauts of all time. Now, decades later, they are ordered by
the Consortium to Pluto, where they will rendezvous with another starship led
by the brilliant, arrogant Captain Shanna Axelrod. Here, on the frozen ammonia
shore of Pluto’s methane sea, Shanna has discovered intelligent creatures
thriving in the -300° degree temperatures. But even as their findings shift
from the amazing to the inconceivable, the two crews must overcome their own
intense rivalry to work together, for the most remote reaches of the solar
system are filled with unimaginable wonders … and countless forces that will
crush all human life. Download and start listening now!
