Unbeknownst to Kate, her father and brother have begun their own investigation on Mars looking for connections between the disappearances and Earth corporate giant Striker Industries - an act Kate knows could have deadly consequences. Now, Kate’s hope is to survive long enough to clear her name, complete the mission, and save her brother, as events turn darker then she could have imagined.
No one is more aware of that darkness then Kristin Dante, first officer of Earth’s prototype starship, the Bonaventure. Responding to a distress call, Kristin and her crew face an alien horror which threatens to consume them, body and soul - a malevolence that will soon be on the Alliance’s doorstep.
The Dantes find themselves at the forefront of a life or death battle against an ancient evil from the stars that has perverted the destiny of the human race for a thousand years. But will their years of dysfunctional family history be the end of us all?
