A band of humans struggle to survive when they crash-land on an icy planet, in this science fiction adventure by the #1 New York Times bestseller.
A sophisticated interstellar traveler, Ethan Frome Fortune is a businessman on board the interstellar transport ship Antares. He isn’t one for heroism or adventure. That would be his fellow passenger (and giant of a man), Skua September. Regardless, both soon get a chance to test their mettle . . .
Tran-ky-ky is an icy, desolate planet sharply carved by hurricane-force winds. It’s a terrible place for an emergency landing, but a botched kidnapping on the Antares sends Ethan, Skua, and some of their fellow travelers hurtling toward the stormy planet. Now, surrounded by hungry killer plants and cat-like natives, this ragged bunch of castaways led by Ethan must keep their wits about them if they ever hope to escape . . .
