Lilac is the famous daughter of a prestigious businessman who owns the amazing spaceship, Icarus, that she is currently traveling on. Tarver is a decorated war hero also traveling on the luxury spaceship, but his experience is much different. When he tries to speak to Lilac in public she makes it very clear that he is beneath her in every way, but shortly after their public altercation the ship is suddenly pulled out of hyperspace. They both end up in the same escape pod and it’s Lilac’s quick mechanical skills that free their pod before the ship crashes. They land on what appears to be an uninhabited planet. In order to survive they must trek across the planet in search of food, people, or a means to communicate. The two are very different and do not get along well at first, but over time they must come together for the goal of survival. Eventually, they start to get close and wonder if they even want to leave their own private planet, but then mysterious things start happening. They hear voices and see hallucinations, among other things. What is this place and can it in fact hurt them?
This sci/fi adventure is very exciting with many twists in the plot. The characters and setting are well developed and interesting, but the ending may confuse some readers. The pacing seems uneven at times too, with parts moving slowly and then a lot happening at once. Fans of this genre will enjoy, but most others will pass on this one.
