Endless Blue

The Very Large Object That ATE the Other Very Large Objects!

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!
