A class one medical emergency summons the Enterprise to the Federation outpost Tanis. There, a grisly surprise awaits them. Two of the lab's three researchers are decade, their bodies almost entirely drained of blood. There are no clues. No records of their research. No remnants of their work. There is only the oupost's sole survivor, Dr. Jeffrey Adams. A man with a secret that will rock the very foundtions of Star Fleet...and a terrible, all-consuming hunger that will bring death to the crew of the Starship Enterprise.
J.M. Dillard grew up coddled in the wilds of central Florida. After leaving her mother’s sheltering arms, she left Florida to reside in various locales, including Washington, DC, Vermont, and southern California. She herself now coddles a two-hundred-pound husband and two ninety-pound Labradors, all of whom are well-trained but persist in believing themselves to be lapdogs. She is the author of a plethora of StarTrek® books; as Jeanne Kalogridis (her evil alter-ego), she is the author of the acclaimed Diaries of the Family Dracul trilogy, and the historical fantasy The Burning Times.
