Double Full Moon Night
For engineer Johann Eberhardt, life has come down to this: a tiny but bountiful island inside a vast alien sphere that is both paradise and prison. Eight years ago, Johann, accompanied by nine Martian colonists, entered the sphere with his beloved Beatrice, priestess-bishop of the Order of St. Michael, searching for the true nature of the mystical visitors some said were extraterrestrial - and others said came from God.Once inside the sphere, the colonists were separated and Johann has since lived in virtual isolation to raise the daughter Beatrice left behind after her tragic death. Now the island paradise Johann shares with the child Maria has been invaded by a violent and enigmatic life-form. Risking everything, Johann begins a dangerous journey across the water in search of safety and his fellow colonists.It is an odyssey that is beset with deadly peril: from strange sentient creatures to imprisonment in an underwater world by a species whose motives may be benevolent. But it is when the colonists are reunited and transported to an exotic planet that the true challenge for survival begins.
