4.6k+ Ratings on Amazon: Likeable characters, believable tech, near-future space exploration, and unique first contact are the things that reviewers love most about this book.

“Full of plot twists and a surprise ending.”

“In a world where authors inject their political and social world views, it’s hard to find good reading to get away from all that.”

“Not a space opera, not a space wars episode – just pure love of exploration and science! Exactly what I love about Sci-Fi.”

“One thing I particularly liked about the book is that it is *maybe* PG-13 in content. Mr. Best, PLEASE continue this in your books. People who are tired of constant sexual innuendo and foul language need something to read too.”

“Awesome book, couldn’t stop reading it! Hard to find good scifi that isn’t alien wars and death all the time.”

Jeff Dolan always wanted to be an astronaut. After helping a private space company build a ship that can travel to Saturn’s largest moon in five months, he gets his chance.

Shortly after launch, a devastating malfunction forces Jeff and the crew to make a choice: continue to Titan, or go back home. As the truth about their mission unravels, one thing is clear: someone on Earth knew about the system flaw and covered it up.

Yet surviving the journey isn’t the crew’s only concern. Even if they make it to Titan, they will face another problem:

Something is already there.

About the Author

Picture of author Samuel Best in Europe

Samuel was born in Cape Canaveral, Florida, and he grew up a mile from the gates of Kennedy Space Center. His grandmother built space shuttles, his father designed scientific equipment that flew on them, and he watched the launches from his rattling front porch, dreaming of the stars.

He recently spent three years traveling across our little blue-green marble in space, finding inspiration for his books in places like Ha Long Bay in Vietnam and the ice caves of Iceland.

His best-selling novel Mission One launched his career as a science fiction writer, and now he spends my time crafting new universes for you to explore.
