Cass has lost everything; her husband, her son, and her will to live.

She walks in the dark when sleep eludes her. One sleepless summer night she spies a UFO and discovers a new obsession. It gives much-needed focus to her empty life.

When natural disasters destroy the Earth, Cass and other survivors are rescued and taken to a new world where the human race can begin anew. But something is wrong here. This may not be the paradise they've been promised. Survivors are vanishing without a trace.

Can Cass unravel the riddle in time to save herself?

Ok to begin with, when I started this book I had my self convinced it was going to be another nautical story. How wrong I was. The first few chapters were a time jump from one character to another and set up the entire book. I have never in all my life read a book as captivating as this one is. I have read a ton of books in my life at my age. This is a amazingly written sci fi story and it makes you think of what just might happen in real life. In this book the main characters are Cassie, Rhys and Seamus. These three end up in such a twist of life events that you have to keep reading and not skip a few pages or even paragraphs to see what is going on next even if the temptation is there at all time. Without giving anything away, these people are convinced of a life changing event and set up in new homes to live their lives. Things start happening and they are all scared and confused as to why. No one seems to have any answers so they just keep trying to continue with living on a day to day basis I would recommend this book to everyone because it is so well written and thought out. You will not be able to stop reading it once you get into it. In fact I read all day yesterday and did absolutely nothing else not even answer the phone. Thank you so much to A.B Shepherd, author, for sending me a free book for an honest review. I so totally loved this book that I am going to purchase a hard copy for my personal library. Hope you all enjoy this story as much as I did. I want to read more books by this author from now on.

Wow! Interesting book...and so not what I expected, I have to say! I don't want to say too much about it, because really, this is a mystery, if wrapped in a science fiction/UFO packaging. I will say it's not exactly an easy story to read in some ways, although it's an extremely fast read, meaning, a definite page-turner for me. Once I got sucked in, I couldn't stop reading until I knew what had happened, and what was really going on, in terms of the unfolding mysterious events. I really doubt much of anyone will be able to guess the ending. The basic premise is that Cass, who lost her husband and young son in a car crash only a few years earlier, becomes obsessed with UFOs, and joins a local chapter of folks who claim to have had similar experiences, or who just happen to have an interest in UFOs. Through them, Cass gets involved with a group of UFO-ologists, and things only get weirder fromm there. Cass is an easy heroine to sympathize with. She's got a lot of emotional stuff to deal with, and you can't help but sympathize with her and her plight, which really carries you through the rest of the story, even as it also makes it harder to watch her try to cope with some of the bizarre occurrences. Very well done...I will definitely check out more of this author's work!
