Seven strangers. One mission. Infinite horror.

A man awakes on a boat at sea with no memory of who or where he is. He's not alone - there are six others, each with a unique set of skills. None of them can remember their names. All of them possess a gun.

When a message appears on the onboard computer - Proceeding to Point A - the group agrees to work together to survive whatever is coming.

But as the boat moves through the mist-shrouded waters, divisions begin to form. Who is directing them and to what purpose? Why can't they remember anything?

And what are the screams they can hear beyond the mist?

Internationally bestselling fantasy author Anthony Ryan - writing as A. J. Ryan - delivers a nerve-shredding thriller in which seven strangers must undertake a terrifying journey into the unknown.

This was a great read! I picked this book up over the weekend just to take a quick look at it. I was in the middle of another book so I didn’t plan to read this one but my eyes caught on that first page and I didn’t want to put it down. It turns out that I had an unexpected day off so I let myself sink into this story and it was just as entertaining as those first few pages promised.

The story focuses on a group of characters on a ship who don’t remember anything about their past and have no idea what is going on. They all have a special skill and seem to know things, but they don’t know how they came to have this information. They are given instructions by an anonymous source that they are not entirely sure that they should trust. I had a great time trying to figure out what was going on right along with these characters and they moved through a dangerous world.

I loved that this book took some turns that I did not see coming and was able to keep me on my toes until the last page. There was plenty of action woven into the story which helped to keep me glued to the pages. I will be recommending this one to others. I am only sorry that it took me so long to pick up this book!

I received a review copy of this book from Orbit.

  1. This sounds fun. I like how none of them seem to know anything…and that they all have a special skill. It’s very intriguing. 😀
