Erin Bowman

The first book in a duology, this sci-fi thriller from Bowman (Retribution Rails, 2017) is an action-packed adventure full of thrills, suspense and horror. In the Trios planetary system, an ambitious science-loving teen, Althea Sadik, works as an intern for a multi-billion-dollar drilling conglomerate. When a storm forces the evacuation of the facility, most of the crew returns home, but Althea and fellow worker Nova board the Odyssey to investigate a distress call from the planet Achlys. When they arrive, the girls discover that the inhabitants of the base are all dead. As they try to piece together what happened, Althea and Nova are confronted by a zombie-like outbreak that forces them to battle a monstrous enemy.
