Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
The behavioral psychologist onboard a survey ship headed to a planet ripe for colonization, Dr. Grace Park must determine the origin of a strange phenomenon that is causing the crew to suffer mental breaks without losing her own mind in the process.
Psychologist Dr. Grace Park is on the Deucalion, a survey ship headed to an icy planet in an unexplored galaxy. She is to observe the thirteen human crew members aboard the ship as they assess the colonization potential of the planet, Eos. Frictions develop as Park befriends the androids of the ship, preferring their company over the baffling complexity of humans, while the rest of the crew treats them with suspicion and even outright hostility. Shortly after landing, the crew finds themselves trapped on the ship by a radiation storm, with no means of communication or escape until it passes. Now the humans are falling prey to waking nightmares of helpless, tongueless insanity. The androids are behaving strangely. Park is forced to confront the fact that her crew, their mission, mysterious Eos itself... nothing is as it seems. -- adapted from jacket

    *Starred Review* Those aboard the Deucalion are slowly being manipulated by something in the hold of the ship, possibly picked up on the planet Eos. The limited crew is slowly losing time or imagining things; they are being cytogenetically frozen to protect them from the effects of whatever is going on. Grace Park, a psychologist specializing in the cues subconsciously given by humans in their body and face, is an outsider with the crew. She has an affinity with the android crew because of her upbringing in New Diego, a biodome off the coast of the States, where she was raised by a workaholic uncle with only her android, Glenn, for company. The others on the crew mistrust her, but the way she views and treats the androids on the ship puts her in the perfect position to figure out what is wrong. Park can't really trust her shipmates or reality, but must quickly discover what is happening on the ship as more of the crew are showing signs that they are impacted by Eos. Nguyen's debut seamlessly blends the nail-biting pace of a thriller with the detailed set pieces of science fiction, perfect for fans of either genre. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
