       Additional Information  
     
      Earth is a place of endless concrete and domed cities, overpopulated with the starving and elderly. The governing body of The Corporation believes they have found a solution to their planet’s crisis with the colonization projects—trial habitations on planets that will eventually lead to mass exodus from the burdened Earth. After several such expeditions, The Corporation has seen both failures and victories, but with a renewed hope they launch Colony 14. Among the numbers of the newest colony are Dove Werner and her father Ganz. At first, all things on the new colony are better than either of them could have hoped, but an altercation between Ganz and an alien beast forces Dove to re-evaluate her future with The Corporation. Quickly she learns that all things with The Corporation are not as they seem...and there are heavily guarded secrets that threaten the lives of the colonists as well as everyone on Earth.
