Stranded on an asteroid, twelve members of a research expedition must rely on their commander's daring plan to reach safety before resources run out.
A story of courage, loyalty, faith and love . . .
Hard work and talent launched Ruby Ladd's career in the Space Corps on a rocket's trajectory -- until disaster on Mars killed her mentor and bruised her spirit. Grounded for five years because of questions about her role in the failed mission, she has finally been granted her first command, a high-profile expedition to the Asteroid Belt that demands her particular brand of courage, optimism, and cool-headed leadership. She wants nothing more than to forget the past and lead a successful mission.
Daredevil filmmaker Holden Gunner comes along to document the expedition. He expects to make a blockbuster true-life space epic. The key to his project lies in Commander Ladd's past . . . but she isn't talking.
Just as Ladd begins to trust Gunner, a series of accidents disables their ship and leaves the whole expedition in imminent peril. With the ship about to be destroyed, Commander Ladd devises a plan of unprecedented daring to bring her people to safety.
