February 13, 2082, First Contact. Sixty-two thousand objects of unknown origin plunge into Earth’s atmosphere – a perfect grid of falling stars screaming across the radio spectrum as they burn.
Not even ashes reach the ground. Three hundred and sixty degrees of global surveillance: something just took a snapshot. And then… nothing.
But from deep space, whispers. Something out there talks – but not to us. Two ships, Theseus and the Crown of Thorns, are launched to discover the origin of Earth’s visitation, one bound for the outer dark of the Kuiper Belt, the other for the heart of the Solar System.
Their crews can barely be called human, what they will face certainly can’t.
