Summary

A special forces troop and an ordinary woman are transported to another planet through a wormhole forcing them to work together to survive. 

Imagine being forced onto a plane by a bunch of mercenaries and then crash landing on another planet. That is what happened to Sara Newman and it was all thanks to her father and an alien named Andrin. 

After they crashed it became obvious that they were on another planet when they saw two suns in the sky. It made it incredibly hot during the day. First and foremost, they needed to survive. They had to find shelter and they had to do it fast. The planet seemed to be dry and mostly barren until they found a large forest. It took them a day’s hike to get there and it took its toll on Sara. The men were used to harsh conditions. They were no strangers to the wilderness or survival and they all seemed to take it all in stride. She wasn’t a soldier but she was smart and she wasn’t about to be told what to do by anyone, much less Colonel Strickland. He was a hard-ass, no-nonsense leader of a pack of men that he referred to as ‘The Boy Scouts’ and he wasn’t about to take any crap from her. Strickland practically raised all of the scouts and they were completely loyal to him. They would do whatever he told them to do, without question. 

Once they were in the forest survival was their main goal. In order to do that they had to find food and water, which was easier said than done. The water was the easy part. There was a river nearby. But food was going to be hard to come by. One couldn’t just pick a berry and eat it. There was a process.  

It didn’t take Sara very long to realize that she was woefully outnumbered. She had horrible visions of being passed around and popping out babies that would eventually be subjected to her same fate. But even so, she wouldn’t let anyone get away with treating her like a stupid woman, which did her more harm than good.

Fast paced and far out.

I enjoyed it very much. Reads more like a long short story. I can't say more or I'll ruin the surprise.

Strap yourself in for an awesome trip.

This story has an interesting plot full of developed characters and locations. I really enjoy the point of view. It is not your typical story line. At the end you are still left thinking about the plot for days. Narrator does an excellent time job of expressing emotion and empathy.
