Ivan Delgato, a former leader of a rebel group called the Runners, is released from jail on the condition that he carry out a secret mission for the World Council. His mission is simple: stay under cover, but do absolutely anything necessary to reach the planet Omega IX and offer the renegade Runners clemency if they surrender. Which may be complicated since Ivan's brutally violent brother has taken lead of the Runners in Ivan's absence.In search of the Runners, Ivan catches a ride out to the wildest reaches of the galaxy via a mysterious transportation system, the star road. His fellow passengers on Star Road Vehicle-66 are an eclectic group, all with their own reasons for traversing the star road. As the travelers contend with increasingly dangerous encounters, it isn't long before suspicions build against Ivan.Culminating as the Runners must choose one brother over the other, those who survive must confront a mystery that will change the star road, and maybe humanity, forever. New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Maberry calls it "a grand adventure of heroes and villains written with smarts, grit and a great sense of fun. Highly recommended!"
