Perfect for fans of Madeleine Roux, Jonathan Maberry, and horror films like 28 Days Later and Resident Evil, this pulse-pounding, hair-raising, utterly terrifying novel is the first in a duology from the critically acclaimed author of the Taken trilogy.

After receiving a distress call from a drill team on a distant planet, a skeleton crew is sent into deep space to perform a standard search-and-rescue mission.

When they arrive, they find the planet littered with the remains of the project--including its members' dead bodies. As they try to piece together what could have possibly decimated an entire project, they discover that some things are best left buried--and some monsters are only too ready to awaken.

HALLELUJAH FOR AN INCREDIBLE SCIFI NOVEL.

That's a 3 hour read time, folks, because I could NOT put this book down. Thrilling and delightfully twisty, and I can't wait for the sequel. Reminiscent of Illuminae in some ways, which made me even happier.

This is an incredibly gripping science fiction mystery that kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time I was reading it! I would especially recommend it for fans of the Illuminae Files series.
