The 27th century: Proxima Centauri, an undistinguished red dwarf star, is the nearest star to our sun - and (in this fiction) - the nearest to host a world, Proxima IV, habitable by humans. But Proxima IV is unlike Earth in many ways. Huddling close to the warmth, orbiting in weeks, it keeps one face to its parent star at all times. The "substellar point", with the star forever overhead, is a blasted desert, and the "antistellar point" on the far side is under an ice cap in perpetual darkness. How would it be to live on such a world? Yuri Jones, with a thousand others, is about to find out.

No Sense of Conclusion
Even a series novel should be able to stand alone on its own merits. This book left way too many people, themes, and plot twists hanging. After giving the story more than 17 hours of my life, I experienced a dramatic let-down. I feel disappointed for getting involved in the first place. Just as the characters betrayed each other, the entire story betrays the reader with an unworthy ending. It ran out of fuel--and I don't know if I want to put this much energy into book two.
