Publishers Extract[]

An extract from the prologue:

Scott took a step and a sullen rumble echoed through the decks. He had the sudden sense of the whole ship tensing around them, like an animal coiling its muscles before pouncing; then a second tremor resonated through, and Scott felt a brief sensation of motion and velocity that faded a heartbeat later.

“What the hell was that?” said Greer.

“I don’t know.” Scott hesitated, then snapped out an order to the Marine. “Sergeant, get these people settled down. Start making an inventory of everything we brought through as soon as you can. Try to figure out who and what we have. No one leaves this room.” He shot a look at Wallace and, as an afterthought, thrust the MagLite into his hand. “Eli! You help him!”

The guy took the flashlight and panned it around, and his face changed as he got the first good look at the place they were in. Eli's mouth dropped open.

It was then, just by chance, that Scott noticed for the first time the writing on the T-shirt Eli was wearing beneath his hoodie. It was white text on a red background, some kind of nerd joke, just three words: YOU ARE HERE.

Yeah, he thought as he walked away, wherever the hell that is.
