The remote Ad Astra seminary in Russia trains dedicated recruits to survive in harsh Lunar or Martian environments, becoming men of holiness and purpose. Here, Tomás Esteban Chen-Diaz hopes the strict routine of study, prayer and work will help heal his broken heart and offer a meaningful alternative to the world of back-stabbing intrigue he rejected when he left his family’s powerful corporation.
Yet living within the sacred confines of a seminary is harder than he expected; soon, he’s challenged to learn new skills while navigating both minor jealousies and global politics—all while making friends and maturing as a person.
But will his virtues of patience and humility help him when he is ultimately put to the test?
Because when he finds himself at the very ends of the earth, he must confront his exiled brother Francisco and force him to face the twisted and deadly shadows of their shared past.
