His past novel, the acclaimed Pandora’s megastar, brought the Intersolar Commonwealth, a star-spanning civilization of the twenty-fourth century. strong, peaceable, and assured, the Commonwealth dispatched a boat to enquire the secret of a disappearing superstar, merely to inadvertently unharness a predatory alien species that grew to become on its liberators, awesome not easy, quickly, and completely with out mercy.

Coexistence is most unlikely with the technologically complex extraterrestrial beings, who're genetically hardwired to exterminate all different kinds of existence. Twenty-three planets have already fallen to the invaders, with casualties within the enormous quantities of thousands. And nobody is familiar with whilst or the place the genocidal top will strike next.
Nor are the top the single risk. For greater than 100 years, a shadowy cult, the Guardians of Selfhood, has warned that an alien with mind-control skills most unlikely to observe or resist–the Starflyer–has secretly infiltrated the Commonwealth. Branded as terrorists, the Guardians and their chief, Bradley Johansson, were hunted via relentless investigator Paula Myo. yet now facts means that the Guardians have been correct all alongside, and that the Starflyer has put brokers in important posts through the Commonwealth–agents who're now sabotaging the warfare attempt. Is the Starflyer an best friend of the best, or has it orchestrated a struggle to the demise among the 2 species for its personal advantage?
Caught among lethal enemies, one a brutal invader remarkable from with no, the opposite a remorseless melanoma killing from inside of, the fractious Commonwealth needs to unite as by no means before.
This might be humanity’s best hour–or its final gasp.
