The world has ended.... The war is only beginning.

An asteroid storm has obliterated the Earth. Billy and Linda West have built enough space-going arks to save a small number of people who now roam the void in search of a new home.

Desperate to find a safe haven, Billy makes a dangerous attempt to exceed the speed of light. When his plans go terribly wrong, the Wests' severely-damaged ship is separated from the fleet and left drifting near a mysterious planet.

This world's conditions are hospitable--but its inhabitants are not. Suddenly the Wests and their fellow survivors are caught in the middle of an ancient war between two brutal nations. Faced with horrific dangers, they are forced to choose a side just to survive.

This story had a lot of potential, but it just fell flat for me. Every problem seems to be solved with incredible ease - even the decades old war between the two nations. Which seem to be the only habitable areas on the entire planet.
Way too many jumps in logic where the reader is expected to believe something has been sorted out. Lack of detail in how things are done.
Written at a level I would expect from teenagers, so I have no idea how this made it through all the editors etc and actually into print. Were there no other manuscripts out there waiting to be printed? There had to be some that were better than this one.

Infantile writing style. When a sword can convert into a rifle and a handgun can be disguised as a knife .......... I threw in the towel ......... or was that a towel disguised as a fully furnished outdoor camping habitat !!!!!!
