I love Nick Lake's writing. I would read anything he wrote - grocery list, email etc., because his writing, always, is so real and so brave. He takes on subjects other writers might avoid, and he writes the hell out of them. - Jennifer Niven, New York Times bestselling author
An epic space story based around real science, it's a truly gripping thriller, imbued with raw emotion. Lake's best book since his debut, In Darkness. - The Bookseller on Satellite
