Finally, Cameron Decker is reunited with Heather – the love of his life, now a fellow galactic traveler in her own right.
Each has survived their own hellish experiences. Now onboard their new starship, they settle in for the journey home to Earth – or what’s left of it.

But soon, the starship is critically damaged, requiring extensive repairs before the journey can continue. Even their immediate survival hangs in the balance. Heather decides to take a pair of escape pods and head to Earth with a motley crew, while Cameron stays back with his Loth and his alien friend, Joe, who are too large to fit.

It seems that nothing will go as planned for either Cameron or Heather. As their separate adventures play out, placing them and their friends in mortal danger, this time reuniting may not be in the cards. And there may not even be a home world for them to return to….
