David S. Goyer and Michael Cassutt - Heaven's Shadow- Book 1(epub,mobi)
Heaven's Shadow begins with the discovery of an object of unknown origin headed toward Earth. Speculation as to what it might be runs high, and leads to an international competition to be the first to land on it, to claim both the prestige and whatever other benefits there might be. Thus, two rival teams of astronauts begin a thrilling and dangerous race – but what they find when they reach their goal will turn out to be unlike anything they could have imagined . . .
What they have landed on is no asteroid but a spacecraft from a civilization that has travelled tens of thousands of years to reach earth. While the team try to work out what it is they are needed for, more sinister occurrences cause them to wonder if their involvement with this alien race will lead to anything but harm for humanity.

HEIR FIRST CHALLENGE IS TO SURVIVE
When an unidentified object is spotted hurtling towards Earth, two rival teams race to claim it. But the affectionately-named Keanu conceals astonishing and dangerous secrets. Instead of barren rock, astronauts discover a giant ship with an extra-terrestrial crew. A ship that had headed to Earth with a mission and a message: Help Us. A brave new frontier beckons, but we are about to learn that it comes with a price.
Without warning or explanation, small groups of humans are transported from the competing scientific communities of Houston and Bangalore to the vast interior habitats of Keanu. Their first task is to stay alive. Their second, to explore the potential of their strange new home and locate their keepers. But most significantly of all, as the ship starts to break down around them, they must figure out why they were brought here and forge a path home.
