Seven hundred fifty years ago, human colonists left Earth and settled on the moons of the distant gas giant Ghara.
Civilization has flourished on Ghara's fertile moons, but humanity's drive to colonize and explore is still strong. Detecting plentiful mineral resources and a rich abundance of alien life on the nearby planet of Selva, the Gharian Colonists mount a dangerous expedition. Young newlywed marines Dustin and Melody will find themselves put to the ultimate test as they forge a way through fierce magnetic storms into an unknown and utterly alien world.
Tensions mount at home, as not all of the colonists support this mission and its high cost of resources, and many are outright hostile toward the marines and scientists who are setting out to colonize the new world.
As the peace the four colonies have shared for almost 200 years starts to fracture, what the expedition finds on Selva might very well be the worst thing humanity has ever dealt with.

Such a great book!
This book has so much imagination and creativity in it.
This whole story is very unique. I like the troubles that they went through, and how real everything was. What I mean is that you can imagine yourself there and hearing the two sides to expand or not to expand and the trials and troubles they go though. With this book even though its set in other worlds will make you feel like you are there. Chris gives details without going overboard. All the way around start to finish. Great book.
This was my first time listening to Kevin Stillwell narrate a book. I enjoyed it. All the voices were different and he kept you enveloped in the story with his cadence changes.
I went into this book expecting to enjoy it, but maybe only listen to it once. However that is not what happened. I loved the book, and can't wait for more books from this world to come. I should mention that when I was giving the highlights to my son he can't wait for it to be made into a video game.
Another Awesome Chris Philbrook book.
