The world has ended…. The war is only beginning.
An asteroid storm has obliterated the Earth. Billy and Linda West have built enough space-going arks to save a small number of people who now roam the void in search of a new home.
Desperate to find a safe haven, Billy makes a dangerous attempt to exceed the speed of light. When his plans go terribly wrong, the Wests' severely-damaged ship is separated from the fleet and left drifting near a mysterious planet.
This world's conditions are hospitable—but its inhabitants are not. Suddenly the Wests and their fellow survivors are caught in the middle of an ancient war between two brutal nations. Faced with horrific dangers, they are forced to choose a side just to survive.

When I first started reading this book, I was dismayed at how rapidly the book progressed. The writer did not put much detail into the book. The story progresses very rapidly and alot of the technical detail is left out. It could have easily contained many many more pages. After I continued to read, I found that I liked the book and enjoyed the story. I very much enjoyed the religious aspect of the story and find myself dismayed that I can't finish the story now as the next book has not been published yet. If you like a good story then this book has that. If your into the type of book that is deep in thought and allows insite into the characters, then this book is probably not for you. I personally read alot of books that contain much more debth than this book did, but still I enjoyed this book and will read the sequel.
Good book for just general reading. Characters were predictable, plot was ok, but overall, I found it good enough to read on a snowed in day.
I was extremely disappointed with this book and regretted ever buying it. The characters were flat, emotionless and without surprise. The plot had no suspense, and like the characters, there was no sense of emotion at any time, nothing ever occurred which was unexpected or unanticipated. As I read the book, the dialogue reminded me of a poorly written science fiction movie plots from the 30s and 40s. The only reason I didn't finish the book was because if I pick it, I will finish. That said, I very much doubt I will ever buy another by this author.
I don't mind religion in books. I'm religious myself. What I do mind is that there is no real foundation to make the characters remotely believable to me. EVERY single character sounds like they're all the same character. Every character is quick to agree. There's no substance. There's no conflict. There's no rhyme or reason. The king in this novel doesn't feel like a king. To me, the king feels like a kid playing make believe. "Oh, you're an outsider from somewhere far away and you're telling me how to run my kingdom? Oh, okay. No problem. Just checking. Carry on. I agree with you. I'll do things your way." What a joke. The book is one long joke without a punchline.
