Publisher's Summary

Nine brilliant scientists travel light-years on a one-way trip to an Earthlike planet. Their mission is to study from orbit the two species of intelligent lifeforms on the surface. The first: an isolated people embarking on civilization and building their world's first city. The second: a brutal race of massive predators, spread thick and still growing across the dominant landmass - destined to breed and eat their way to extinction within a few centuries.
After eight years of observation, disaster strikes the orbiting station, and only two crewmembers eject successfully. Drifting down through a dark, alien sky, the pair realizes their escape pod launched not toward the safety of the city but to the other side of the planet, touching down deep inside a land no human could possibly survive.

Extraordinary

My first experience of Michael Siemsen story-telling and will definitely not be my last. Fascinating, exciting and richly detailed, I have nothing but praise for Exigency. Julia Whelan was a wonderful narrator and I could not imagine anyone more accomplished in bringing the diverse characters to life.
