What happens when a '40s something mother inherits a crew of rookie twenty-year-olds and the mission is to race to a planet where celestial beings hold ransom the blueprint to humanity's continued existence? The question is will she leave her dying son on Earth to take on this desperate mission? One wrong step could seal their fate.
Veronika Taylor Morgan knows interstellar mining like the back of her hand. But leading a military expedition into deep space is another matter altogether. With a mind-devouring plague ravaging Earth—holding ancient ties to prehistory—civil society is crumbling. Miraculously, radio signals from space lead to a discovery: the remains of ancient aliens in a spacecraft are buried in the Transantarctic Mountains. Already shaken—when a message is received offering help from the hidden planet Nemesis, Earth's remnants are hopeful for salvation. Torn by her responsibility to care for her desperately sick son, Veronika knows her mining frigate, Assurity, is the only ship capable of following the map to a cure.
Assurity is an action-packed sci-fi novel with a hint of ancient mystery. If you like tenacious heroines, interstellar exploration, and unexpected twists, then you'll love Anthony Barbera's captivating tale.
