Neither of them are prepared to be thrust into a world of political intrigue amid the tangled forests and crumbling ruins of Austria.

But with the freighter’s crew in danger, the Surveyor has no choice but to venture into unknown territory. As soon as they enter the cloud, its unstable effects wreak havoc on the ship. They’re flying blind. Every piece of equipment is malfunctioning. And every member of the crew is unable to think straight or act like themselves—except Andi. Now she’s expected to guide them through the predicament with no previous command experience and no one to turn to for support. And with each passing hour, it becomes clear that if they don’t escape the cloud soon—they won’t escape it at all.
