Editorial Reviews

Narrator James Patrick Cronin's serious performance captures the initial disorientation of Chaz Eades as he wakes up aboard the Cassiopeia on the first mission to an alien solar system. Chaz is troubled when he finds out that the crew has woken up days before him, and not only that, they seem to deeply mistrust him. Cronin gives Chaz a thoughtful and intelligent voice, and his gradual realizations about strange inconsistencies - including his missing memories and the loss of an antenna that transmits data from Earth - are often gasp-inducing. As Chaz finds himself more and more isolated, he realizes that the only mission that should matter to him is survival.

Publisher's Summary

Chaz Eades is on the mission of a lifetime - the first to an alien solar system far beyond our own - and it's a one-way trip. When he learns that contact with Earth has been lost, he wants to help reestablish communication. But the commander insists on science first and contact later, the crew is inexplicably hostile, and Chaz finds himself painfully isolated. Soon he realizes that there's a secret at the heart of the crew's troubles that is much larger than any he could have imagined.

All bets are off, and he's not at all prepared for the mission he faces now: survival.
