About Wayfarer: AV494

Kerys Loring hopes an expedition to a distant alien ruin will make her career―assuming she lives long enough to still have one.

Her last team made a significant find, but her bosses took all the recognition and grant money. When Avasar Biotechnology appeals to her unique combination of experience and desperation, she jumps at the chance, even if it means leaving her little brother behind for a three-year trip.

At least she’ll be thousands of light-years away from her abusive ex.

Within minutes of arrival, her excitement shatters at the sight of her ex already there. Clinging to the hope his position with botanical sciences will keep him away from her team, she forces herself to continue.

On her first day in the ruins, she makes a profound discovery… but something goes terribly wrong.

Her domineering ex soon becomes the least of her problems as an unstoppable alien threat plunges Wayfarer Outpost into chaos. Trapped in an isolated facility with death stalking every corridor, Kerys finds herself up against an even more insidious threat than ancient aliens: the truth.

Reviews for Wayfarer: AV494

When I saw the cover for this book, I knew I had to read it. Its really nice to look at, kind of mysterious and exciting all at the same time. The description really topped it off for me, I knew I had to read it. I’ve loved every book I’ve read from the author so far, and I couldn’t wait to start this one. I’m really glad I got the chance to read it.

The story begins with pain, darkness, and a strange beeping. Kerys is in stasis. She has been for a few years, while her and her team [...]

This book was... insane. I haven't been that 'on the edge of my seat' in quite a while. If you like foreign planet/space thrillers, then this one's for you.

In Wayfarer, Kerys Loring jumps headfirst for the opportunity to explore an alien ruin on a foreign planet. Once there, however, she is shocked to discover that her ex is also stationed on the planet, an issue that takes the backseat when an extreme unknown alien threat takes over and plunges the base in chaos.

Wayfarer was a little slow at the outset and I wasn't sure if it was going to pick [...]

Kerys wanted to leave everything behind. Her career wasn’t going well and she was just getting over a bad relationship with a man named Will. What better way to get a new start then to take a three-year trip to Wayfarer Outpost which is situated on another planet. Kerys new job is to spend 6 months exploring ancient alien relics. The problem is that Will is a botanist and is already on the planet working.

While Will is outside working, Kerys goes along with an expedition into the alien ruins and discovers something deadly. Now everyone is trapped in the [...]

Wayfarer: AV494 by Matthew S. Cox is the story of Kerys Loring, hurtled thousands of light years from earth, far from her young brother Jaden and all the troubles of her past (or so she thinks), in search of biological life - aliens - in remote corners of the universe. After awaking in the cryogenic pod she'd been asleep in for nearly three years, she's met by a team of military doctors, scientists, researchers, and Avasar Biotech crew who are all there with the same goal in mind: to evaluate and assess suspected signs of nonhuman civilization. Kerys's job is [...]
