In 2078, whilst working the Trojan asteroid cloud, Captain Taylor and the crew of the deep space mining vessel Icarus discover a mysterious prototype ship drifting in space that has suffered a catastrophic failure.

Battling the dangers of the asteroid field, the Icarus crew attempt to rescue the survivors of the stricken ship. Meanwhile, a vessel from Earth is coming to deal with the damaged prototype but with a conflicting agenda. After unwittingly discovering the bizarre secret of the prototype vessel, the crew of the Icarus end up fighting for their very survival.

Great start. I rarely vote for a first chapter but found this one had just the right amount of hook!

Very good. The writing is simplistic and to the point, as writing should be.

I feel drawn into the story already. You have a very 'casual' writing style, which is really easy to read and enjoy. Loved the doughnut humour.
