Kim’s group, still stranded halfway across Antares, must get back to the base camp through a journey filled with deadly encounters. Meanwhile, at the base camp, a trip to the neighbouring planet—source of the strange ray that vaporised Kim’s daughter—is being organised.
The prospect of meeting an intelligent species, though, drives the religious fanatics in charge to clamp down on any person or activity deemed rebellious.

I've been hooked on Leo's work since the Aldebaran series and not just because of the story and the intrigue but because of what he draws.

This is almost good old fashioned scifi with a modern Leo twist. Well, it is!
