Space opera is back with a bang!
Lieutenant Joel Gilmore is part of a space observation team who find themselves attacked by the very aliens they are watching. It becomes a race against time for their fellow soldiers to rescue them, but
in doing so, they unlock the shocking secrets of the solar system.
With thrilling action sequences and brilliantly characterized aliens, this science fiction novelist is one to watch–but be careful of the aliens. These are not Star Trek aliens with altered faces, but a glimpse of what really might be out there. . . .
Ben Jeapes is the author of two previous novels for young people and adults. He runs his own science fiction publishing company in England.
