Soon Janek has his hands full defending himself and the station against a growing horde of monstrosities: biological ones lurking outside, human ones inside. And as if all that wasn’t already dangerous enough, his heart also threatens to break: Among the minister’s entourage is Tanja, who is the only one who knows the reason for Janek’s self-chosen isolation…
