One hundred and eight crew members perished, and Eli Glinn was left paralyzed. But his was not all. The tragedy revealed something truly terrifying: the meteorite they tried to retrieve was not, in fact, simply a rock. Instead, it was a complex organism from the deep reaches of space.

The same organism from Preston's "The Ice Limit" has implanted itself in the seabed two miles below the surface--and it is growing. If it is not destroyed, the planet will be doomed.
