Publisher's Summary

A wicked snowstorm had blown in from the north and the roads were a mess. Recently split from his one-time girlfriend, there was now nothing holding Cameron Decker here in the little backwater mountain town of Larksburg Stand. Time to get back to college, back to Stanford. Seeing a guy knee-deep in slush at the side of the road, he pulled to the curb and waved him over. The guy smacked his head getting in - knocked his watch cap askew. Only then did Cameron notice - noticed that the individual couldn't possibly be human.

Cameron decided to help his stranded passenger - a decision he'd soon come to regret. Along with his rust-bucket of a pickup truck, he was soon heading deep into space aboard an interstellar spacecraft. After the vessel crash-landed onto an alien world, he would now have to contend with a murderous droid and a slew of strange alien life forms. But it is the 45-foot tall killer beast - a Minal Loth - that will impact is life the most. Marooned, Cameron must keep his wits to survive long enough to find a way to return home - back to that little mountain town, and that girl, who he should never have left in the first place.

Exceptional book .. as always <br />

I most generally will not use one of my credits for any book less than 10+ hours long.
The only exception is any of Mark Wayne McGinnis's books. I have all the scrapyard series of books,so using one of my credits on this book was a no brainer.
There's something about his writing style that I really like. This book,joyfully, was no exception.
A great book by a great author.
The only complaint I have with any of his books is length. All of his books run at about 8.5 hours.
Which to me is a little to short. I always finish them in one sitting. So if your reading these reviews Mr Mcginnis please ad about 3 or 4 hours of additional story telling please,your books are done way to soon. I know you can do it without being repetitive.
Can't wait for a sequel.
