Publisher's Summary

Roy Holland and the crew of the Poseidon were tasked with bringing home the scientists aboard the unresponsive research vessel Athena II. But as the Poseidon approached the ship resting near the event horizon of black hole V616, they discovered something truly terrible.   

"Everyone's nails go black eventually."

I enjoyed this one

A well written book. It keeps your interest throughout and has a solid plot. Well narrated and easy to listen to.

Haunting. Exciting.

I could almost hear something calling in the back of my mind as well. Big props to the performance from M. Mason for getting me fully immersed even while I was at work. Was compelled to finish the whole book in one session.

Poorly written immitation of a cool 90's movie

Horribly done immitation of Event Horizon, but without any of the things that made that movie good. The poorly written characters aren't worth caring about, and have backstories consisting of one or two lines. This story is an insult to horror and is why the genre suffers more that it could ever deserve. Avoid at all costs.

Not bad for short SciFi/Horror.

Performance is great. Story is fairly middle of road. Lots of similarities to the Event Horizon movie but I don't mind more stories in the X investigates Black Hole or Rescue type stories.

I feel it could have been expanded on more and the sense of time could have been shown better for the reader to get a better sense of what they were experiencing.

Overall nothing terribly new, but good for a commute!

mostly just a rehash of Event Horizon

pretty much just a rehash of Event Horizon. Hard to like any of the characters, very predictable from start to finish, except one pressing concern.... with all the flame throwing & body burning going on in a space craft, where is all the smoke going? Did I miss something?

Maybe this piece is an early writing effort to sort of redo Event Horizon with maybe enough changes to avoid lawsuits? Probably.

Unfortunately I recommend waving and passing by this piece.

It was okay

Not bad, but honestly I found it to be a less atmospheric version of the movie event horizon. The premise was good but didn't manage to capture any creepiness. I will maybe check oit.kther stuff by author but was left a bit underwhelmed by this one. Still I think was worth the cost. The narration was good.

What a space ride

A store with many curves from what happens to the crew to interrogation of the lone survivor.
