The Sargasso. Space ships go in, and they don't come back. But as the
all-destroying Nefrim drive humanity from the stars, everything depends
on one captain's desperate gambit: to dial his stardrive to zero—to
"fall off the map"—and plunge into the ocean-covered pocket universe
that is the Sargasso. Within is a secret that can change a galaxy. And,
though escape is a trick generations of trapped starfarers have tried
and failed to master—now the fate of two universes depends on Mikail
Volkov being the first to GET OUT!
