       Additional Information  
      It-s been 20 years since Maisie Thurlow last saw her big sister. First a team of government "minders" tore their family from the pastoral religious colony that was the only home small Maisie had known. Then a mutiny aboard the star liner carrying the displaced colonists separated the sisters, with Eve boarding a lifeboat aimed toward a vacant but inhabitable planet. Now Maisie is Captain Thurlow of Star Guard, and she can-t resist trying to find her sister when her patrol ship-s course takes it temptingly near that remote world. That-s when Murphy-s Law kicks in with a vengeance, bringing Maisie-s ship down in flames on the mountain where Eve-s lifeboat landed. Throwing Maisie and her surviving crew members into a survival scenario none of their training anticipated, because this planet-s atmosphere does strange things to Humans...and they-re just as trapped on it, now, as Eve is.
