The continuation of Oliver’s story as events upon the Arno unfold. His father secrets him inside the core to keep him safe while power systems all over the ship continue to fail. When Oliver can wait no longer for his family to join him, he climbs out and discovers that he’s completely alone. What could have happened? Meanwhile, back on Earth, the mission support team also becomes aware of the situation on the Arno. Can Oliver complete the mission and locate the Artifact on which all of their hopes depend? Should he even try? He’s just a kid. A kid who has lost everyone he has ever known. Just before expressing his wish to continue the mission, Oliver is attacked by a mysterious being in his dreams and must wall his essence away to protect himself. This same being later appears to Director Langley, the man in charge of the project. Its intentions are unknown, but as they involve posession of unwilling human vessels readers may perceive them as malicious. The mystery deepens. Exciting, intriguing, and surprising!
