Set against a future of marauding space scavengers and deadly aliens who kill with sound, here is a frightening, fast-paced YA adventure from the author of the acclaimed horror novel, Shutter.

Tuck has been in stasis on the USS John Muir, a ship that houses Earth’s most valued artifacts—its natural resources. Parks and mountains are preserved in space.

Laura belongs to a shipraiding family, who are funded by a group used to getting what they want. And they want what’s on the Muir.

Tuck and Laura didn’t bargain on working together or battling mutant aliens who use sound to kill. But their plan is the only hope for their crews, their families, and themselves.

In space, nobody can hear you scream . . . but on the John Muir, the screams are the last thing you’ll hear.

Review: This book! While I felt it could have had a little more in way of explaining some things, I loved the horror parts, and Tuck and Laura were interesting, if a little underdeveloped. Overall the horror parts were perfection, and the rest of the story wasn’t far behind, but I did get lost in a few places, and had to back track, even then a few times I found I was confused, but continued to read on, despite that. I managed to get enough out of the story to understand most of it, and the aliens were creepy and frightening just as they were intended, I just wish more of the who, what, and where’s were explained a little better throughout.
