IF SOUND KILLS, HOW CAN NEL GET THE WORLD TO LISTEN?
Archaeologist Nel Bently dreamed of finding a ground-breaking site--she just never thought it would be on another planet. When she arrives on Samsara however, Lin confesses that the trip took longer than Nel thought. Two years longer. She throws her anger and homesickness into her work, wondering if she just made the biggest mistake of her life.
Then a lead officer on her team takes a walk without his atmosuit. Once again, confusion and grief rock Nel's dig. But this time, she's determined to fix it--even if it means mutiny. Lightyears separate her from home and as Samsara's body count rises, the more it looks like Earth is next.
