19 years to get there. 8 years in orbit. “Three minutes to evacuate.”
Exigency, the latest novel from Michael Siemsen, is an exquisite new demonstration of the author’s unique approach to crafting dynamic, richly-drawn characters and worlds you never wish to leave.
Nine brilliant scientists travel light years on a one-way trip to an Earth-like planet. Their mission is to study from orbit the two species of intelligent lifeforms on the surface. The first: an isolated people embarking on civilization and building their world’s first city. The second: a brutal race of massive predators, spread thick and still growing across the dominant landmass – destined to breed and eat their way to extinction within a few centuries.
After eight years of observation, disaster strikes the orbiting station and only two crewmembers eject successfully. Drifting down through a dark alien sky, the pair realizes their escape pod launched not toward the safety of the city, but to the other side of the planet, touching down deep within a land no human could possibly survive.
Exigency’s audio book edition, performed by Julia Whelan, Audible’s 2014 Narrator of the Year, is now live on Audible.com and iTunes.
