For decades, they have watched us from the darkness. The outsiders have arrived, silently, relentlessly, and claimed the outer solar system as their own. They have refused all attempts at communication and viciously attacked anything and anyone that approached. No one knows who the outsiders are, where they come from—or what they want.
But Captain Elena Gonzales is going to find out. She and the crew of the Gabriel have been chosen to journey to the outside, to the mysterious moons of the planet Jupiter—and to finally confront the unknown monsters that wait for us beyond the edge of the map.
What she learns there will forever alter her people’s destiny. She will either unite humanity in the face of the outsiders, or allow them to shatter the Earth’s fragile peace.

Set entirely in the Solar System about 150 years from now, humanity has recovered from a major natural disaster and a war that set the back drop of this novel. A lone space ship has been sent on a mission to the outer solar system to confront the Outsiders who appear to have claimed the outer solar system for themselves. Now enough for a cover blurb. This book tells a tightly paced story alternating between the book's present and events about 6 months previous. Though not from a major publisher the story is as good, indeed better than many SF novels I have seen published by established authors. This book does have its flaws though; the biggest is editing. There are a few spots in the novel where it is clear this novel was never given to anyone to proof read. Sometimes it is an odd a wrong word (possibly the result of an over aggressive spell check?) or a sentence that seems to have been reworded half way through without fixing the first part. They are jarring, especially since they pull you out of the story for a moment while you figure out what the author was trying to say. Still this is definitely a very big cut above most of small press and indie novels I have read. Kudos to the author. I probably should give 4.5 stars, but B&N won't let me do that.
Publisher at comicon said it would be good soooo i trust him
