About the Book:
When Earth intercepts a message from a long-extinct alien race, it seems like the solution the planet has been waiting for. The Undying's advanced technology has the potential to undo environmental damage and turn lives around, and Gaia, their former home planet, is a treasure trove waiting to be uncovered.

For Jules Addison and his fellow scholars, the discovery of an alien culture offers unprecedented opportunity for study... as long as scavengers like Amelia Radcliffe don't loot everything first. Mia and Jules' different reasons for smuggling themselves onto Gaia put them immediately at odds, but after escaping a dangerous confrontation with other scavvers, they form a fragile alliance.

In order to penetrate the Undying temple and reach the tech and information hidden within, the two must decode the ancient race's secrets and survive their traps. But the more they learn about the Undying, the more their presence in the temple seems to be part of a grand design that could spell the end of the human race...

About the Author: Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner are longtime friends and sometime flatmates who have traveled the world (but not yet the galaxy), covering every continent between them. They are sure outer space is only a matter of time. Meagan, who is also the author of the Skylark trilogy, currently lives in Asheville, North Carolina. Amie, who is the co-author of The Illuminae Files, lives in Melbourne, Australia. Although they currently live apart, they are united by their love of space opera, road trips, and second breakfasts. You can find them on Twitter at @AmieKaufman and @MeaganSpooner.

Notes and Opinions:  If you haven't preordered this one yet you need to do so NOW!! These two authors are back with a kick-butt story that is pegged as Indiana Jones in Space and I can tell you right now that if you are an Indi fan then you are going to love this one!  This book has it all humor, action, jaw-dropping moments and one killer story!  Death-defying characters go at it in this page-turner that I couldn't put down!  I am very sad that book two won't be out for another year as I NEED IT NOW!! Or well two weeks ago since that is when I read this. The characters shine in this story about saving some alien race to save the world. It was spectacular and I want more!
