Terminus – A novella length introduction to exciting new Science Fiction adventures by Jason Halstead and John M. Davis
Joy. A name had never been less fitting for anyone in the history of the universe. Joy Kowara grew up knowing nothing but fear, pain, and loneliness. The only escape she could find from a ruined life landed her in worst labor camp in the galaxy. A mining and terraforming camp on planet Opdyke. Opdyke was a miserable planet with nothing but wind, snow, and ferocious animals anxious for some fresh meat. The only valuable thing about the planet was the rich mineral veins the prisoners had to work around the clock. Death was a welcome relief from the frozen wasteland that most prisoners invariable came to look forward to. When the ice wolves called Ferren slipped through the fence and came for Joy, she knew she had to make a decision. Surrender to their savage fangs and be done with her life, or fight back and find a way to escape the miserable planet. It was that simple, she only had to decide if today was her day to die.
