Life after the Crash.
Over a century after the end of the Earth, life goes on in Redemption, the sole remaining Lunar colony, and possibly the last outpost of humankind in the Solar System. But with an existential threat burrowing its way into the Moon's core, humanity must recolonize the homeworld.
Twenty brave dropnauts set off on a mission to explore the empty planet. Four of them—Rai, Hera, Ghost and Tien—have trained for two-and-a-half years for the Return. They're bound for Martinez Base, just outside the Old Earth city of San Francisco.
But what awaits them there will turn their assumptions upside down—and in the process, either save or destroy what's left of humanity.

The narrative style is fast and informal. The third person limited point of view (POV) shifts between multiple characters within most chapters... Coatsworth’s writing is nimble, so this POV style often aids in action scenes, particularly towards the end of the book... This book is for progressive science fiction fans who care about human beings as well as the environment, and like a fast, optimistic, and entertaining read with high concepts but no headaches.
Coatsworth has packed the pages with a cast of characters and action and amazing world building details... The LGBTQ elements are so seamlessly woven into the story, with their relationships a sweet and subtle contrast to the battles they face. This is a great addition to the other books in this universe and a great read for science fiction fans.
