It was a cargo run, a jump between systems that they had done a dozen times. It was supposed to be routine. Instead, the crew of the Sarafina find themselves in a universe of ravaged worlds and danger. They have no idea where they are or what dangers they face in an old cargo hauler with no weapons or shields.
Join the crew for this story of ordinary people forced into adventure as they try to discover why once populous worlds have been wiped clean of humanity. Their quest is to discover why the first ship they encountered attacked them on sight and how they fight for the future of humanity.
With battles in space, uneasy alliances, strange aliens, virtual reality, and AI systems, this is a hard SF novel, rich in technical detail, led by Gregor, an ex-navy pilot from New Russia. He thought that he had chosen a quiet life, but luck wasnâ€™t on his side.
