It's been decades since anyone set foot on the moon. Now three ordinary teenagers, the winners of NASA's unprecedented, worldwide lottery, are about to become the first young people in space--and change their lives forever. Mia, from Norway, hopes this will be her punk band's ticket to fame and fortune. Midori believes it's her way out of her restrained life in Japan. Antoine, from France, just wants to get as far away from his ex-girlfriend as possible.
It's the opportunity of a lifetime, but little do the teenagers know that something sinister is waiting for them on the desolate surface of the moon. And in the black vacuum of space... no one is coming to save them.
In this chilling adventure set in the most brutal landscape known to man, highly acclaimed Norwegian novelist Johan Harstad creates a vivid and frightening world of possibilities we can only hope never come true.

This book has been on my wish list for so long. Pretty much everyone that I follow on Goodreads really enjoyed it and It has a pretty decent rating on too. I have seen a few people say that it is more of a horror novel than a sci-fi, which is perfectly fine with me! I love horror books so this is right up my alley. I would much rather read a horror novel than watch a horror movie. I really need to get this book.

Have you read this book yet? What are your thoughts on it?
