The starship Freedom is marooned in deep space, far from home. Crippled. Barely flying. But she is not alone.
In the shadows, evil stirs. A race woven from arachnid and human DNA. They hunt like spiders. They think like men. They are the perfect killers. Like a virus, they invade the Freedom.
James “Bulldog” King, commander of the Freedom, has fought alien fleets. This is different. This is worse. The infestation swarms through Freedom’s labyrinthine halls. Destroying. Eating up the Freedom from the inside.
King must muster all his courage. All his strength. He must reclaim his ship. He must find his way home. Or not only Freedom will fall—but Earth itself.
