When journalist Cormac Easton is selected to document the first manned mission into deep space, he dreams of securing his place in history as one of humanity's great explorers. But in space, nothing goes according to plan. The crew wake from hypersleep to discover their captain dead in his allegedly fail-proof safety pod. They mourn, and Cormac sends a beautifully written eulogy back to Earth. The word from ground control is unequivocal: no matter what happens, the mission must continue. But as the body count begins to rise, Cormac finds himself alone and spiraling toward his own inevitable death, unless he can do something to stop it.

To be honest, I didn't finish this, so I won't rate it. However, there is only so much floating around in nothingness I can take before I get bored and drift off. I didn't much like the main character and didn't know enough about the other characters to really care about what was happening. This may or may not be a spoiler as I'm just throwing out a guess as to where this story was going, but I got the feeling it was headed in an 'Interstellar' meets 'Donnie Darko' in space sort of direction, which could be interesting, but I couldn't work up the enthusiasm to care or read any further. Take this with a grain of salt; It might be great, I just never finished it and don't plan to in the future.
