"My name is Cloelia Sterling of the New Exodus humans. If anyone is out there, please respond."

For Cloelia Sterling, one planet has never been enough. When her curiosity leads her to send a message into deep space, she discovers that life does indeed exist on other planets... and not all of it is friendly.
