Facing the enemy at the gates
All her life Cariad had one dream: to take part in humankind's colonization of deep space. After topping her field as a geneticist, and then spending 184 years in cryonic suspension, she's achieved her goal.
But the new planet is not the paradise the scientists predicted. Alien predators come out at night, ready to feast on the new arrivals. What's more, Cariad discovers that saboteurs have stowed away aboard the ship and are determined to destroy the new colony.
To defeat the settlers' enemies, she must enlist the help of the disgruntled Gens. These men and women are last in the line of generational colonists who lived and died on the long journey to the stars. And they want their freedom.
Infighting and strife plague Cariad's efforts. If the colony's factions don't pull together, the flame of hope for humanity will be snuffed out.
The Concordia Deception is book one in the compelling, provocative space colonization epic adventure, Space Colony One.
