Description

"You wouldn't think events happening years apart, at points in the solar system hundreds of millions of miles distant, would have anything to do with each other."

When she was six, Daphne was taken into a neighbor's toolshed, and came within seconds of never coming out alive. Most of the scars healed. Except for the one that went all the way through.

"You wouldn't think that the serial murders of children, and the one who got away, would have any connection with the strange fate of one of Jupiter's moons."

Two decades later, when Daphne goes missing again, it's nothing new. As her exes might agree, running is what she does best . . . so her brother Tanner sets out one more time to find her. Whether in the mountains, or in his own family, search-and-rescue is what he does best.

"But it does. It's all connected. Everything's connected."

Down two different paths, along two different timelines, Daphne and Tanner both find themselves trapped in a savage hunt for the rarest people on earth, by those who would slaughter them on behalf of ravenous entities that lurk outside of time.

"So when things start to unravel, it all starts to unravel."

But in ominous signs that have traveled light-years to be seen by human eyes, and that plummet from the sky, the ultimate truth is revealed:

There are some things in the cosmos that terrify even the gods.



About the Author

Called "a writer of spectacularly unflinching gifts" by no less than Peter Straub, Brian Hodge is one of those people who always has to be making something. So far, he's made thirteen novels, around 130 shorter works, five full-length collections, and, for Whom the Gods Would Destroy, a book soundtrack of cinematic ambient and space music. One recent novella of cosmic horror has been optioned for development as a TV series. He lives in Colorado, where he also likes to make music and photographs; loves everything about organic gardening except the thieving squirrels; and trains in Krav Maga and kickboxing, which are of no use at all against the squirrels.
