Publisher's Summary

Fifty years ago, Mira, humanity's last hope to find new resources, exited the solar system bound for Proxima Centauri B. Seven years into her mission, all transmissions ceased without warning. Mira and her crew were presumed lost. Humanity, unified during her construction, splintered into insurgency and rebellion.
Now, an outpost orbiting Pluto has detected a distress call from an unpowered object entering Sol space: Mira has returned. When all attempts at communications fail, a search and rescue vessel is dispatched from Trident Station to intercept, investigate, and tow the beleaguered Mira to Neptune.
As the marines prepare for the journey, uncertainty and conspiracy fomented by Trident Station's governing AIs, begin to take their toll. Upon reaching Mira, they discover they've been sent on a mission that will almost certainly end in catastrophe.
The Derelict saga is a suspenseful mashup of hard military sci-fi, space opera, and mystery.
Some mysteries shouldn't be solved.

Aliens meets Event Horizon



I'll start with the negative. If you don't like cliffhangers and absolutely must know what happens, this may not be the book for you(Or at least until the entire saga is available of course).

I found that the story read and generated the same atmosphere and feeling as Event Horizon. That is to say it is a Sci-Fi romp that gives enough interesting science and theory to established a believable world on the surface, with cool technology and history. Don't dig too deep(in science) or you'll encounter the horror/fantasy underbelly(which is not a bad thing in my opinion). This IS NOT hard Sci-Fi, don't unfairly rate it for not being something it isn't aiming for.

Characterization is superb. He accomplished what few do and gives you a world with character. Sure it's cold and unforgiving, even plotting against you, but you feel the danger waiting in the dark.

In short, don't come here for a WH40K space marine world. Instead explore the darkness of space in a cruel world to find a dead ship.
