Description

Faced with overwhelming odds, they’ll have to fight to survive..

Astronaut. Repairman. Prisoner. CenturoCorp engineer Darrien Norris begins a journey across Terran Colonial space to restore a broken mining machine on a distant, mineral harvest world. It was supposed to be routine—a good run to finish his career—but his shuttle is thrown without warning from its course by an unseen power and survival becomes the only thing that matters. Catapulted across half the galaxy to a violent and hostile place, Norris has been left to survive or die inside an inescapable, alien horror merely for the crime of being lost—of being human. Escape is his purpose, but what he finds in the grinding, desperate fight to live will forever change the path of human history.

This title will be releasing soon in hardcover.

Advance Praise

"Absolute top rate science fiction! The author has created characters, planets, methods of travel, atmosphere, etc. so vivid that I felt at times as though I was watching a film and not reading at all. In my opinion, Robert Davies' SPECIMEN 959 is a brilliant work, and deserves "classic" status for his masterful details, superb imagination, and the ability to keep my attention at a peak level throughout the book. I am very excited to read his next and his next and his next books. I say that Davies is to science fiction literature what Gene Roddenberry was to TV. Captivating!"

Pretty good. The author creates a good amount of suspense, and does a pretty good job of creating interesting characters. I like hard scifi and this belong in that category. I have to check out the next the series. I really appreciate the copy for review!!

It's an interesting book. The plot was intricately woven. One does not understand until the ending why people are acting as they do.

Darrien was an interesting main character, I enjoyed going on this journey with him. I liked him as a character and he felt like a real person to me.
