Terminus – A novella length introduction to exciting new Science Fiction adventures by Jason Halstead and John M. Davis
Sentenced to a labor crew for crimes they didn't commit, Tor and his wife are condemned to spend the rest of their short lives slaving away on the frozen rock known as Opdyke. Being forced to live like a criminal can change a person. In Tor and Jinx's case, where they'd once been content they now hungered for more. More freedom. More life. The only way to get what they wanted meant escape, but the only escape from Opdyke was death.
Tor needed a crew. People he could trust, picked from a collection of the galaxy's worst criminals. Then he needed an opportunity, just as one of the psychic torturers known as the Gifted showed up to conduct an inspection.
Their choices were escape or die. Either was preferable to a slow death freezing day after day mining ore. Tor's only hope was that they could rely on the skills of his unproven crew. That and a lot of luck if they were going to get off the planet and find a safe place to hide.
