The Kepos Problem
by Erica Rue
Dione Quinn is a biology nerd, not a fighter, but when a school research trip goes wrong and the Venatorians attack their ship, she doesn’t have much of a choice.

They’ve escaped for now, but they are stranded where no one will find them, and one of her classmates has been injured in the attack.

As Dione discovers the truth about the planet and the lengths to which she must go to save her friends, Kepos presents a problem. One that will force Dione to decide:
What is her future worth?
