.Coming in Second half 2019

.

.This is a page turner and absolutely stunning story of a sole survivor if a doomed space mission.

.

. Catherine and Cal are main heroes of the story.

Catherine is Astronaut who is sole survivor of Saggitarius space mission.

And Cal works in NASA as flight officer who helps solve a deep and complex mystery.

Catherine tolerates years of loneliness, PTSD and betrayals in her personal life.
.

She looses everything she ever endeared for sake of humanity and its endeavour to scale unknown corners of the universe.
She came back but it was all so unbearable.
She tried to fight every obstacle that came to her during mission and after her return to earth.
.

.
She had amnesia which erased parts of her memory which contained vital secrets required to prove that she was always innocent and dedicated astronaut.
.
.
Story is engaging, fast, thrilling and interwinds relations and human curiosity as two partially antagonistic things.
Scientific facts appear believable .
.

Details of spaceship on distant planet are highlight of the book and pull reader into finishing one more chapter.
Parts describing family conflicts were a little damp.
.
Part when Catherine and Cal go to meet old astronaut in Phoenix by road featuring their college teen like conversation could easily be ommited to keep intensity of plot alive at that point of novel.
.
.
Overall very good work about space exploration and its perils.

Author has actually researched a lot to keep latest developments in perspective.

.

.
Climax is appropriate and leads way for possible next part of the story.
