When Dax Wyldd, captain of the cargo vessel Fortune’s Luck received a distress beacon from a Navy frigate, he knew things would get bad. He didn’t expect a slaughtered Navy crew and a xenomorph monster. Rescuing the lone survivor, Marine Sergeant C.J. Ivers, Dax became inexorably drawn into a rescue attempt of the civilian research team at Station K124 on the moon Loki, where the xenomorphs had originated. The rescue mission quickly degenerates into a life and death struggle against terrifying monsters called Ravers, the same creatures that had forced the Huresh underground before wiping them out. As Dax learns more about the Ravers, the struggle for survival intensifies and death stalks them at every turn.
