The Dark Star Universe


Book 1 – Point of No Return

A human colony ship on route to a new planet is a prestigious, but nonthreatening, assignment. All of that goes horribly wrong when the Midgar-6 makes first contact with a hostile alien race. Now, Captain Amara Black and her crew have one chance to save the million colonists in suspended animation… but they might have even bigger problems…
