The year is 2438. Humanity has migrated to the stars in discrete waves, driven by evolving technologies and new ways of being human.

Revolutionary leader Melilah Awad seeks an alliance to unlock Geodesica's secrets with VOIDship pilot Palmer Eogan, a lover she lost to the Dark more than two centuries earlier. What they find could be more dangerous than anyone--human or more than human--could imagine...
