Summary
A journey across the galaxy, a race against time.At the end of the twenty-second century, Earth is slowly recovering from global warming. From England's Lake District, the World Governing Body rules unchallenged. Due to Earth's dwindling resources, an official relocation policy transfers many people to the desert planet Gnaritus. In truth, Earth's elite use Gnaritus as a dumping ground for anyone they deem inconvenient or unwanted. With cancer rates skyrocketing from the effects of climate change, Earth is desperate for a cure, and respected scientist Dr. Rod Stinguard promises an anti-cancer viral vector treatment to great acclaim. Stinguard's colleague, Dr. Surina Mathew, discovers the medication causes lethal mutations in half of all people receiving it. However, Stinguard orchestrates Surina's relocation to Gnaritus before she can warn more than a handful of people. On Gnaritus, Surina discovers Earth's outcasts have built a society free of humanity's past mistakes. She also learns answers to many of the dilemmas on Earth, such as: Who belongs? Who matters? Although Gnaritus's vision of cosmic harmony intrigues her, she cannot forget the deadly treatment Stinguard is about to unleash on Earth. She hopes to warn Earth about the viral vector's lethal payload, but with an interplanetary firewall blocking communication, she's not sure she'll get the chance
