Adrift

‘AN EDGE-OF-THE-SEAT EPIC OF SURVIVAL AND ADVENTURE IN DEEP SPACE’ Gareth L. Powell

‘A UNIQUE MIX OF THRILLER, SPACE ADVENTURE AND CONSPIRACY NOVEL – HIGHLY RECOMMENDED’ Jamie Sawyer

In the far reaches of space, a tour group embarks on what will be the trip of a lifetime – in more ways than one . . .

For one small group, a tour of the nearby Horsehead Nebula is meant to be a short but stunning highlight in the trip of a lifetime.

But when a mysterious ship destroys Sigma Station and everyone on it, suddenly their tourist shuttle is stranded.

They have no weapons. No food. No water. No one back home knows they’re alive.

And the mysterious ship is hunting them.

Rob Boffard’s Adrift is a thrilling science fiction tale of survival against all odds – perfect for fans of Alastair Reynold’s Revenger, Becky Chamber’s The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet, Adrian Tchaikovksy’ Children of Time and John Scalzi’s The Collapsing Empire.

K. B. Wagers, author of BEHIND THE THRONE
A claustrophobic and fiercely written adventure, Adrift is a crackling read full of intrigue, isolation and smart world-building. The story moves at a breakneck pace, every page dripping with tension
Jeremy Szal
So so so so good . . . A rip rollicking adventure of the finest kind, with crackling dialogue, divisive characters, cleverly obscure motivations and you know, battles in space . . . Storytelling of the best kind. Fast and furious with a literary twist and more excitement than you can shake a stick at . . . Highly Recommended.
