Thea is a student intern with one of the top biologists on an icy planet. However, when the foreman of the project she is working on receives an SOS from a nearby team at a covert base, she is thrown into something she definitely hadn’t studied for.

Thea and her small crew are sent to rescue the distressed team, but what they find when they land is nothing like what they expected. There are bodies. Bodies with dozens of injuries. A pile of bodies in a frozen river. And one survivor whom they are told explicitly not to trust.

In order to follow what she thinks is right, Thea has to go against her foreman, her biologist, and even herself. When she discovers the terrible secret–the contagion and what it can do–she must plan for not only her future, but the future of humanity.
