1) It became quickly apparent that this story would be a blending of genres, and often times that is a tricky adventure. However, Labbe mastered incorporating elements of Horror, Thriller, and Sci-Fi into one story. The romantic subplot even had a little BDSM woven into it, but the sex never felt gratuitous or unnecessary. The characters were all morally gray, which I totally appreciated given the setting of a space prison. The ship was dark, filled with shadows and had me turning the pages as quickly as I could get through them. Even the depiction of the alien - however superficial - felt like its description was purposely left ambiguous so that the reader created more of a monster than what the author described on the page. Well done!

2nd Edition

Haunted by the screams of the men he murdered, ex-Marine medic Riff Khora is serving a life sentence on board a prison ship. Seeking more punishment for his crime, he strikes a deal with the corrupt Captain Vidal--an exchange of pleasure and pain--and forges a new life leading the team that surveys space wreckage for salvage.

Ship engineer Zed Jakobsen's psychometric abilities make prison a sentence worse than death, and the barrage of emotional stimuli is an unending torment. His only regret is that he didn't kill the monster who sent him to prison, and only a glimmer of hope to escape a judgment he doesn't deserve keeps him clinging to a brutal existence.

When they board derelict ship Pandora and discover a lone survivor, the hell of prison life plunges into abject horror. An epidemic of violence and insanity consumes their ship, driving the crew to murder and destruction. Mutual need draws Riff and Zed together, and their bond gives them the strength to fight a reality they cannot trust. But Vidal possesses the only means of escape from the nightmare, and he's not letting anyone leave alive.

First Edition published as Pandora in the Deep Into Darkness: Aliens, Alphas and Antiheroes Anthology by Smashwords, 2015.
