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
Battle-ready fleets converge above the colony of Darien, seeking access to the powerful weapons at the planet's heart. For the despotic Hegemony, Darien's hidden technology would allow it to consolidate its power and utterly dominate known space. Darien's besieged inhabitants will fight for their future, but time is running out.
Unknown to both sides, events are being manipulated by malignant AI minds, who have their own agenda. And they are near to unleashing their cohorts - a cyborg army of twisted machine intelligences imprisoned beneath Darien.
Darien is the frontline in a clash between oppression and liberty, with machines and sentients on both sides. But will the outcome be freedom or the subversion of life itself?

I really believe it could have been so much better and the prior books were leading to something much more satisfying
Too many characters, factions, and, with so many story lines converging in book 3, I was left in a state of general confusion.
