Standing at the intersection of science fiction and suspense, the crew-members of the starship Raven are having a bad day. They should be setting down on Midway, the layover on their return trip to Earth.
Instead, they stand on the unforgiving desert of the prison planet Claustrom, the crashed hulk of the Raven before them, the dangers of the alien planet beyond. If they ever hope to see Earth again, they must survive Claustrom’s extreme environment to uncover the planet’s secret.
You won’t be able to put down this science fiction thriller. An intricately woven tale set in the 31st century, its twists and surprises will keep you turning the pages to the end. In this first book of the Claustrom trilogy by James Slater, molecular and gravitational manipulation are fraught with opportunities and hazards. The real dangers, however, lie not in the technologies, but in the humans themselves.
