The second instalment in a compelling new space opera series from the acclaimed Australian author of the Parrish Plessis books.
Having fled the invasion on Araldis, Mira Fedor travels to the nearest Orion League planet seeking aid for her devastated world, but the authorities seem more interested in stealing her bio-ship, Insignia, than in rendering help. While Mira flees from world to world, Araldis burns.
The more Mira uncovers, the more mysteries she finds: why is the initiate Tekton taking such extreme measures just to acquire a mineral alloy Why do so many of the protagonists in this galaxy-wide drama have links to the Stain Wars
And what part does the Sole Entity - literally, God - have to play . . .
