Publisher's Summary

After returning from a 30-year trade mission, the crew of the Ea wake from cryonic suspension to find that their home world, Bh'Haret, is dead. "Screamer" satellites have been strung around their planet, warning of a plague. A scan of the surface of Bh'Haret reveals no trace of human life - only crumbling cities. Their fuel and other supplies nearly exhausted, the crew has little choice but to make planet fall on Bh'Haret, infected with a virulent and deadly disease. In a desperate scramble to save themselves, the crew members of the Ea must each, in his or her own way, come to terms with the death of their world - and try to rekindle a belief in the possibility of life.


What the Critics Say

"[P]age-turning thrills aplenty.... Boyczuk borrows from sources as diverse as Tolkien, Star Wars, and Alan Moore, and integrates the miscellany admirably into a fast-paced plot." (Publishers Weekly)

Science Fiction That Packs a Punch

This book is great on so many levels. Good solid Science Fiction, great characters, complicated but interesting relationships, solid plot twists and an excellent narrator.

Although the books stands up well as an entertaining single read, I am hoping a sequel is in the works.

Fun, and looking forward to the author's work...

I'll keep this simple, and give away no storyline points. This is a very good read. Believable, well-planned, moved along briskly, and keeps your attention. It takes armageddon to another level - Revenge! Enjoy this listen for what it is - A sweeping story with no moral lessons. It will keep you listening, and wanting more. Robert, I'm looking forward to what's next - You've set your bar high.
