Heaven’s Shadow, by David S. Goyer and Michael Cassutt
Years ago an object was spotted in space, thought to be an asteroid of some kind and dubbed Keanu. As the immense object approaches Earth, two space shuttles are sent to investigate. But when the astronauts arrive, they soon discover the object is not a lifeless rock. And Keanu has been sent to Earth with a purpose.

Full of danger, tension, surprises, and chills, science fiction fans will definitely want to check out this exciting new release. Edge-of-your-seat-excitement meets emotional drama with an explosive finale. This gripping story builds in intensity to its climactic cliffhanger ending that will leave readers wanting more.
