Matthew finds himself stranded on an alien world. Sangit Ru was inhabited by savage life forms, where the inhabitants never traveled alone. It was a volcanic forest planet with rivers of molten lava. Amid a strange alien culture steeped in superstition, he has to struggle to stay alive. As he's drawn ever deeper into the extra terrestrial culture, something soon becomes certain—they'd never met anyone quite like Matthew before. Has his journey taken him to his doom in hell? Or do the denizens of hell have something to fear?
