The fate of Earth’s first colony rests on the shoulders of a pair of misfits: Theo Puck, a rogue hacker with a gift for speaking to machines, and Selena Samuelson, a brash but talented pilot with a dark secret in her past.
Earth went silent fifteen years ago. No contact. No resupply. The colony is on the verge of collapse. To survive, they must make a desperate return to Earth on the old colony ship, Chimera. However, the AI that allows faster-than-light travel has gone to sleep. No one knows how to wake her, and hundreds of years of neglect have taken their toll.
Theo and Selena’s fates become intertwined while behind the scenes, a brilliant sociopath sets in motion events that may doom the colony once and for all.
