Malfunctioning tech. Accidents and injuries. And something haunting the depths… Three years ago, a horrific accident closed ACM-1134, the energy mine on Ketarus-4. Now the mine has reopened, and Justin Barclay has joined the first new batch of miners hired to begin harvesting the energy stored below the planet’s surface. But as he settles in to his new job and home, Justin quickly discovers that the mine’s polished exterior is masking a host of hidden dangers—some of them fatal. When the mine’s technology begins malfunctioning, Justin’s coworkers mysteriously disappear, get injured, and some even die. Justin knows something else is going on—and he’s the only one willing to do something to stop it. With his job and his life on the line, Justin works to uncover the mine’s darkest secrets to save himself and his fellow workers. But the company doesn’t like Justin digging where he shouldn’t be, and they’re determined to put a stop to his inquest once and for all—at any cost. As Justin begins to unearth the mine’s darkest secrets, he starts to realize that sometimes it’s better to let the past stay buried. FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
I'm going to start off by saying this is NOT my typical read. I have always stayed away from science fiction in reading. Why? Well, I think it's just better to watch than to read! Easier to understand too. Haha!! I love this type of science fiction in shows or movies, but it has never been something I chose to read. But, when I came across this I thought "Hey, why not try it?" That being said, I accepted this book, and I was surprised at how much I liked it. Because I have not read much science fiction, I can't compare this to other stories, but I can say it's definitely worth the read. It was action packed from the beginning. It has twists and turns around every corner. The characters are, and it is full of danger and mystery. It has a great storyline, and it has a scare factor that grabs you and makes you want more. I hated putting this book down. Honestly, I have nothing bad to say about this book. It was written very well. Its mysterious and scary. It was intriguing and kept me reading. It was all around an excellent book. So, for being one of the only science fiction books I have read, I was greatly impressed. It was a crazy ad wild ride. I will add that I think this would make an excellent movie!! Haha!
