Out Now - Orbit Books

In the far reaches of space, a tour group embarks on what will be the trip of a lifetime – in more ways than one . . .

Adrift in outer space on a vastly under-equipped ship, they’ve got no experience, no weapons, no contact with civilisation. They are way out of their depth, and if they can’t figure out how to work together, they’re never getting home alive.
