The bestselling author of Daemon returns with a near-future technological thriller, in which a charismatic billionaire recruits a team of adventurers to launch the first deep space mining operation--a mission that could alter the trajectory of human civilization.
 
When itinerant cave diver James Tighe receives an invitation to billionaire Nathan Joyce's private island, he thinks it must be a mistake. But Tighe's unique skill set makes him a prime candidate for Joyce's high-risk venture to mine a near-earth asteroid--with the goal of kick-starting an entire off-world economy. The potential rewards and personal risks are staggering, but the competition is fierce and the stakes couldn't be higher.
 
Isolated and pushed beyond their breaking points, Tighe and his fellow twenty-first century adventurers--ex-soldiers, former astronauts, BASE jumpers, and mountain climbers--must rely on each other to survive not only the dangers of a multi-year expedition but the harsh realities of business in space. They're determined to transform humanity from an Earth-bound species to a space-faring one--or die trying.


Advance Galley Reviews

I was pleasantly surprised! At times, I was worried about the book dragging when the techicnal aspects of space travel and machine specifics were introduced. I will admit, it wasn’t my favorite part, but I was truly interested in the outcome of the flight. The characters pulled me in, and at times, the story seemed to go a little towards the unrealistic, but overall, I was pleased, and I would recommend.

This isn’t the type of book I normally read. Loved the premise but didn’t care for the characters. I started skimming about halfway through. Too many characters and the science stuff bored me.

Honestly, I didn't really care for this book. I gave it a thorough read through, but found myself wanting more from the characters. The plot is a bit tired in my opinion. I would rate this 2 out of 5 stars.
