A wormhole away from Earth, a planet square in the goldilocks zone is found - a perfect location for a new colony. Fifty colonists set out to make this new world their home. Starting with their crash-landing, accident after accident has whittled their numbers and stalled their efforts to make a viable colony. 

On day 114, Gary Holbrook discovers a saboteur is at work. Now, he has to stop the killer before the colony is completely devastated. Tomorrow is the colony's first communications window with Earth - their only chance to ask for help - and someone needs to be alive to make that call.

Day 115 on an Alien World is novel length and fully written. I'm just working on the final wordsmithing. My plan is to put up a chapter every Wednesday.
  
Thanks for reading! Let me know what you think and I welcome constructive feedback. 
  
Just as a note - occasionally my characters swear and some sex is suggested

I can't help but wonder how this section would have been if she stayed in view and they could see her struggle for air.

Wow, what a tragedy. It really tugged on the emotions reading this. The butterfly leading him to her little den was a nice touch.
