A starship hurtles through the emptiness of space. Its destination — unknown. Its purpose — a mystery.
Now, one man wakes up. Ripped from a dream of a new home — a new planet and the woman he was meant to love in his arms — he finds himself wet, naked, and freezing to death. The dark halls are full of monsters but trusting other survivors he meets might be the greater danger.
All he has are questions — Who is he? Where are they going? What happened to the dream of a new life? What happened to Hull Zero Three?
All will be answered, if he can survive the ship.
Hull Zero Three is an edge-of-your-seat thriller set in the darkest reaches of space.

Wildly imaginative but a little inaccessible
Wait, what just happened?
Try as I might, I still cant seem to get along with hard sci-fi. I liked a lot of the ideas in this novel, just not how they were executed. The story is quite unforgiving of any laps in concentration, maybe not the best book for in-car listening. On paper (not the best metaphor for a book I know but bear with me) its a sci-fi horror story set on a vast space ship adrift in space, people get carried away by monsters and minced up but its all a bit un-engaging, some guys from the Star Wars cantenna turn up very early on too.
I wanted this to be a creepy sci fi horror mystery, and it is, quite disturbing in places, but in a sort of, weird way. The horror things get explained away quite quickly, and the mysteries are sadly old news to anyone who has spent more than five minutes in the genre. cool creepy ending though if a bit anti-climactic.
I have no idea, none of them were particularly memorable, but that's down to the characters not the performance. Teacher, the central character is played well and as his story unfolds it becomes quite poignant.
If anything it reminded me of Pandorum, with a few twists to make it not look like outright robbery. It does differ a bit, but not by very much and give away far more too quickly than that movie.
I'm weary of reading any more novels by this author.
