A deadly mission to an uncharted world riddled with ancient secrets.
On his last job, Cade Korbin lost his ship, lost his credits, and barely escaped with his life. But it’s not over. His enemy is still out there, nursing a decades-old vendetta, and now his guild is coming after him for breaking their rules.
Cade desperately needs credits and somewhere to lie low for a while. To that end, he takes a job on an uncharted world, code-named Nexus, to rescue a team of missing researchers and to recover the alien artifacts that they went searching for. But Nexus proves to be far deadlier than even its class-five hazard rating would suggest, and Cade realizes that he’ll be lucky to escape with his life, let alone accomplish the mission. Yet unknown to Cade, there is a danger on Nexus that goes far beyond the alien monsters that prowl its surface: A terrifying menace has been waiting for untold eons to emerge.
And Cade Korbin is just about to wake it up.
