Two millennia ago, the Centauri Princess, a twelve-mile long starship, left a damaged Earth to seek colonization of a planet orbiting the Sun's nearest neighbor, Alpha Centauri. Two years prior to the events in this book, the inhabitants of this generational ark experienced a devastating attack by creatures known as the Wolf Angels. Now, this thriving community of 3,000 people is in crucial need of securing more uranium isotope to provide power to their ship, and a dangerous mining mission on the Delta iceworld that they are about to pass may be their only chance for survival.

Among the crew selected is a woman named Caroline, who has some frightening premonitions that seem to be connected with this mission. When the crew arrives only to discover a city on the dead planetoid, they realize that they have little knowledge of this world's past...and the people who inhabited it long ago. Delving into a search for answers may be the most dangerous thing they could do.

Although the author has put a lot of thought into the science surrounding this story, I must admit that his skills in facts and calculations far exceed those related to fiction writing. Regardless, I believe that this might be a fascinating story for a budding astronomer or sci-fi freak.
