HORIZON

By: Keith Stevenson

Summary:

Thirty-four light years from Earth, the explorer ship Magellan is nearing its objective – the Iota Persei system.

But when ship commander Cait Dyson wakes from deepsleep, she finds her co-pilot dead and the ship’s AI unresponsive. Cait works with the rest of her multinational crew to regain control of the ship, until they learn that Earth is facing total environmental collapse and their mission must change if humanity is to survive.

As tensions rise and personal and political agendas play out in the ship’s cramped confines, the crew finally reach the planet Horizon, where everything they know will be challenged.

Our View:

A tightly and confidently written debut. The theme of humanity’s ability to sabotage itself even when its survival is at stake is brilliantly exposed right from the very start.

Part thriller and part space exploration, ‘Horizon’ will appeal most especially to fans of Stephen Baxter, Paul McAuley and Arthur C. Clarke.

Current Price:
$2.99/£1.99
