First of all. Sci-fi and horror smashed together is my new favorite thing! I did not know what to expect with this book when I picked it as my next read. But I am sure glad that I gave it a shot. I will say that this book will be for a specific reader, I am not sure that everyone would have loved it as much as I did. And the way that it ended was RUDE! I need more. Talk about a CLIFF HANGER!!! I am such an emotional and animated reader, so there were definitely parts where I was screaming, and talking back as I was reading. Enough about me, let me tell you about the book.

When a crew gets an urgent distress call, they are sent to a planet with no inhabitants with the notion that they are preforming a search and rescue mission. When the crew gets to the planet what they find makes no sense at all. Discarded weapons arise the question of ‘where is the crew?’

“It got in us.”

After scouring the planet, the crew comes across dead bodies EVERYWHERE! And find messages from a crew member written in his own blood. “Don’t trust the kid”

It is soon clear that this search and rescue mission they were sent on, is more than they bargain for. And as they try and solve the mystery of who and or what has killed an entire crew of their men the mission takes a drastic turn.

And they soon realize that some monsters lie dormant while others are just waiting to wake up.

Until next time, until the next book.
