A multi-layered, 21st century take on the classic tropes of space opera by a bold new voice in British science fiction
From the Back Cover
War erupts in the depths of space.
The peaceful human colony of Darien has become the centre of an ancient conflict. On one side lies the Construct AI and its millennia long mission to protect sentient species. On the other awaits an army of twisted machine intelligences - imprisoned beneath Darien long ago and set to rise to the surface to destroy all organic life in the universe.
Enemies circle above Darien and the machines rise from below as a terrible battle is about to recommence. Machine vs. human. Life - or the sterile dusts of space.
