Summary

The riddle of enigma...

Years of exacting study were coming to an end. All five student scientists, each the best its species had to offer, were one step away from their final degrees. One examination remained: The students were to determine why the tiny planet of Enigma, a planet with so little mass that it should never have had an atmosphere, in fact it did. Everything seemed to be running smoothly until the only human member of the team, Molly was accidentally blown into one of the deep fissures that pocked the planet's surface. She found herself trapped in a series of tunnels and caves that only led her deeper into the riddle that was at the heart of Enigma. But as her concerned companions followed her, they found Enigma's most puzzling anomaly. For in the dark passages they discovered life - life which couldn't possibly exist.

Reminds me of a paper I wrote in Junior High

The story was good, but it seemed like the Junior High School paper I wrote where I didn't know how to end the story, so I ended it "they all died." Not so much because they died, but because the author did not work through the story to the end so much as jump from the story to a future time where the story was over and everyone lived happily ever after. If I'd spent a credit, I'd be seriously thinking about returning the book, but it came on Audible Plus, so you can't beat free. If you don't have Plus and you really want to read it, wait for a sale.
