One pre-apocalyptic Earth. One desperate space mission to find a solution. One unexpected alien.
When Dr. Sakota Thorell signed onto the mission to scout out a new, habitable planet, she knew discovering extraterrestrial life was always a possibility. But she never expected to find an alien adrift in space, nor for that alien to be so intriguing. Sakota feels an instant and undeniable attraction to Astraeus, but he represents a million possibilities, and just as many threats.
There are others hunting Astraeus, and his rescue may cost Earth its last hope.
Earth is on the brink of extinction. The only solution: find a new planet to inhabit before it’s too late. Dr. Sakota Thorell is one of the crew on Sleipnir and her mission is to find a planet equal to Earth somewhere in the galaxy. It’s been a year and so far, nothing but all that changes when she discovers an alien floating in space. She’s drawn to Astraeus and it’s more than scientific curiosity. A romance blooms but along with it comes danger. Can they find a home for humans or has the rescue of Astraeus signed their death warrant?
What a thrilling space adventure! While reading, I could hear whispers of Picard and Riker. The premise of Earth dying and a need to go out into space to save all of humanity is a timely one. The characters leapt off the page and for this space girl, I loved every minute of it. Yes, there’s romance but it doesn’t detract from the main plot. Plenty of action and suspense to please any science fiction reader. My favorite scenes were with Astraeus, for obvious reasons. Who doesn’t love a smart, intelligent, sexy alien?
If you’re looking for a space dystopian adventure, pick up Astraeus today!
