The prisoners have been transported to the Moon and the men are the first to disembark from the shuttle.
As they disembarked from the shuttle, each man paused when his feet touched the lunar surface.

It was 0700 hours ship’s time, which was synchronized with Eastern Daylight Time and they noticed that the day/night meridian intersected the United States just west of the Mississippi, leaving the western half of the Americas still in darkness, the lights of the major cities sparse across the plains and through the mountains, and sprawling the length of the West Coast.
Rock Bound will be available in multiple e-book formats at Smashwords this week and in papaerback in early March.
