From the moment Sam Newman and fourteen others awaken next to a burning wreckage of a spacecraft, they’re faced with a constant struggle to stay alive on a seemingly uninhabited planet light-years from home.
Worse, the last thing any of them remember, they were back home on Earth – at a time when interstellar travel was no more than a distant pipe dream.
Survival means finding out who – or what – brought them to this place. Yet what few answers they find amidst the streaming jungles and ruins of that world defy all logic or sanity, and it soon becomes evident something has gone terribly wrong…
…something that could mean the human race’s survival – or its extinction.
