A lethal virus is awoken on an abandoned spaceship in this incredibly fast-paced, claustrophobic thriller. They thought the ship would be their salvation. Zahra knew every detail of the plan. House of Wisdom, a massive exploration vessel, had been abandoned by the government of Earth a decade earlier, when a deadly virus broke out and killed everyone on board in a matter of hours. But now it could belong to her people if they were bold enough to take it. All they needed to do was kidnap Jaswinder Bhattacharya—the sole survivor of the tragedy, and the last person whose genetic signature would allow entry to the spaceship. But what Zahra and her crew could not know was what waited for them on the ship—a terrifying secret buried by the government. A threat to all of humanity that lay sleeping alongside the orbiting dead. And then they woke it up.

Zahra wants the world to know the truth about her father. She believes he wasn't to blame for the deaths of people on the space ship House of Wisdom. So when Adam, the cult leader she'd followed since a child, says that their 'family' can take the deserted ship as their own? She believes him. Little do any of them know the truth behind the deaths in space.

What worked: This is one thrilling, intense ride, especially when Zahra and the others in her group board the quarantined spaceship and wake up a horrific secret that threatens all life.

This story reminded me of Alien meets Andomeda Strain. Only in this novel there is a separatist element that wants to take over the deserted spaceship for their own. The book is told in two different points of view. Jas Bhattaharya, the only survivor of House of Wisdom. The other is Zahra, the daughter of the scientist accused of releasing a deadly virus that killed everyone on the ship.

Jas's nightmares of surviving and losing both of his parents come back full force when he's abducted by the separatists and forced back on the House of Wisdom. He watches his fellow friends be killed, but nothing is as shocking as revisiting the place of his parent's death. The scenes are chilling and very creepy. But nothing is as spine-chilling as the truth that Earth's Council has hidden from everyone. This truth is more horrifying than anyone knows. **Seems there is alien life out there after all. And not all of it is 'friendly'.

Twists and turns throughout the novel kept me glued to the pages until the end. Just when you think the story is going to go one way, another twist pops up.

The added element of a cult is an intriguing twist. Readers find out about how the Earth's Council isn't too friendly to all people, especially those who are refugees. It wasn't hard to believe why someone like Zahra and her group might be willing to believe a man like Adam's promises for a better life in outer space.

Creepy, horror Sci-Fi tale set in outer space that shows a frightening glimpse of the consequences of searching for alien life. Action-packed with intense horror-filled scenes that are guaranteed to keep readers on the edge of their seats until the very last page.
Good Points
1. Creepy horror tale set in space
2. Alien meets Andomeda Strain with the deadly consequences of reawakening alien life
