I received this book for free from Author Gifted in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
As you know, I like science fiction, and this story was no different. In a future time when Earth is no longer habitable as we know it, there are colonies on the Moon and Mars. With a toxic gas that threatens what is left of Earth, a scientist discovers what could be used to save Earth and Mankind as we know it. The trouble is that it is on one of Saturn’s moons.
This is where a fearless captain and his number two come in. Along with brilliant scientists and specialists they set off from Moon to navigate the stars and bring home this mineral, if they don’t die in the process. Traveling to Saturn is not a walk in the pack between stasis, random meteors, and oh you know… life forms beyond our knowledge.
This book started off up beat and victorious, by the end you want to shake those who put the crew into the position they found themselves in. Lives are changed, the world as they know it is over. There are some twists along the way, that once they start you can’t stop them.
The author was really good at being scientific but at the same time creating a good story that combines both the science but the human emotion. There are times that science fiction writers are too science and not enough heart. This one has both in the proportions that makes it a good read.
