Beautiful Zurt is a science fiction novella by Jes Simon, released February 2014.

From the back cover:

No one greets her on the tarmac.

No one answers when she calls out.

Renya receives an invitation from a friend to join him on a lush resort planet. What she finds is a long abandoned city and no way to escape.

Surrounding the city is a dense jungle that defies exploration.

All that remains are scattered alien tools and signs in a language she doesn't understand.

This is no vacation. It's the start of her strange adventure.
