“Hull Zero Three is a fast-paced story of cloned people aboard a colonist ship that is damaged and at war with itself. The clones have to piece together what has gone wrong in their world in order to survive the dangers of manufactured beasts that would kill them. This is one of the best science fiction novels that I have ever read. A real page turner!”

A starship hurtles through the emptiness of space. Its destination: unknown. Its purpose: a mystery. Its history: lost. Now, one man wakes up. Ripped from a dream of a new home--a new planet and the woman he was meant to loves--he finds himself, wet, naked, and freezing to death.
