Twelve billion metric tons of asteroid. One woman who can save Earth. Zero margin for error.
For war hero Caitlin Taggart, mining work on the Moon is dirty, low pay, and high risk. But no risk seems too extreme if it helps her return to Earth and the daughter she loves more than life itself. Offered a dangerous, long-shot chance to realize that dream, Caitlin will gamble with more than just her life.
By leading a ragtag crew of miners on a perilous assignment to harvest an asteroid, Caitlin could earn a small fortune. More importantly, it would give her clearance to return to Earth.
But when an unexpected disaster strikes the mission, Caitlin is plunged into a race to save not only herself, but every human being on Earth.
Zero Limit by Jeremy K. Brown
The last unknown, outer space! The last place humanity can taint with greed. Caitlin Taggert was a war hero, now working on the moon, mining. The pay is bad, the conditions are poor and the risk is high, but she lives for her daughter on earth and the hope she will be with her soon.
Caitlin and her team are made an offer they cannot refuse, an offer to risk it all for wealth and a chance to go back to Earth. One mining mission that was it, one illegal mining mission on an asteroid floating in space. One dangerous, illegal mining mission on an asteroid, what could go wrong? Wasn’t her team the best of the best? Supplied worn out equipment, with the carrot of seeing her daughter soon dangling in her face, Caitlin and her crew were about to cause a disaster that could cause the Earth to perish, her daughter, included. Now it is up to her to save herself, her crew and the world.
ZERO LIMIT by Jeremy K. Brown has moments of white-knuckle reading, moments of motherly angst, the slime of greed and that gut churning race against time and the impossible. It also has poor decisions, the consequences of those decisions and the weight of humanity hanging in the balance. As the clock ticks down, the tension ramps up and a plethora of characters get involved, some with political machinations, some with dollar signs dancing in their dreams, some re-hashing an old love gone bad…and where is Caitlin? Out of control in space, being chased by an asteroid thrown off course and the clock keeps ticking…
A quick read, perfect for space travel fans who enjoy that race against doom while clueless earth-bound powerhouses wring their hands!
