HELL FROZEN OVER

Madeline Fathom had miraculously landed the crippled Nebula Storm on Europa. She joined on that frozen moon of Jupiter the stranded crewmembers of the ill-fated EU vessel  Odin. The Nebula Storm's reactor was ruined in the landing, the Odin’s shuttle can’t make the trip back home, and the only vessel that could have make the journey to save them has just been destroyed by a renegade crewman, bad luck, and the remorseless forces of nature.

But Madeline, Helen Sutter, A.J. Baker and the team have one card left to play. All they have to do... is survive lethal radiation, vacuum, and ice as hard as steel while they figure out how to make  Nebula Storm fly again.

But even as they prepare to make the journey home, Europa has one more discovery waiting for them... a discovery that might be the deadliest trap in the Solar System!

About Portal:

"Portal is a fast-paced tale that will remind many of classic science fiction from the 1950s and 1960s. If you were a fan of Hal Clement’s stories combining world-building and aliens, Poul Anderson’s space adventures or Robert Heinlein’s tales of competent people in extraordinary circumstances, you will like Portal ... Flint remains one of the leading modern authors of science-fiction, and Spoor establishes himself as a rising presence."—Daily News of Galveston County

Praise for previous books in this series:

“. . . fast-paced sci-fi espionage thriller . . . light in tone and hard on science . . .” —Publishers Weekly on Boundary

“The whole crew from Flint and Spoor's Boundary are back. . . . Tensions run high throughout the Ceres mission . . . a fine choice for any collection.” —Publishers Weekly on Threshold

“[P]aleontology, engineering, and space flight, puzzles in linguistics, biology, physics, and evolution further the story, as well as wacky humor, academic rivalries, and even some sweet romances.” —School Library Journal on Boundary

Synopsis:

Sequel to Threshold, Book Three in the Boundary series.

An exploratory mission to Mars and beyond begets a rush to gain control of advanced alien technology—even if it leads to an interplanetary war.

Stranded on Europa:  Madeline Fathom miraculously crash lands the crippled Nebula Storm

on Europa with the surviving crewmembers of an ill-fated EU vessel landing nearby. Help is most definitely not on the way.  Escaping a trap of mysterious alien technology—then using it to her advantage—is Madeline’s only chance to escape a very frosty demise on a very lonely moon.
