Captain Patrick Knox, war hero and a man who has seen too many dead soldiers, is on his final journey. His task? To take an aging ship full of colonists to a backwater farm planet, with a short stop at a prison planet to offload a cargo of serial killers.
After that, he's done. He'll sit with the ghosts of his dead and drink himself to oblivion.
Then an act of sabotage causes the colony ship to crash onto an unmapped and eerie alien planet, the majority of their supplies lost and their tech destroyed. There is little chance of rescue. Somehow, Knox must find his ragged band of survivors safe harbor on a primeval planet where murderers roam free, even the plants are carnivorous… and the only surviving doctor is a convicted serial killer…
This is a very fast-paced action-filled sci-fi that is the first in a series. I really had trouble stopping reading so that I could go to work. I very much enjoyed this story, as a sci-fi nut anyway, this is a great story.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Page turning suspense. Can’t wait to start book 2!
Highly recommended page turner. For fans that like the dystopian world of Ridley Scott’s Prometheus
