After the battle against the planet-ship Malum, Senior Commander Jared Carter is assigned command of the Confederacy’s experimental Navy cruiser Hattan. The highly classified mission reunites him with fellow officers who also survived Malum’s attack. They head through known space and across the Great Void to reach the trajectory of a transmission sent by Malum before it attacked.
Nho, the keeper of Sarco’s staff, joins the lengthy mission. Jared counts on the cleric’s ability to communicate with the One as they navigate the unknown because the crew and officers—comprised of species from multiple worlds—may be as big a danger to themselves as the threat they seek.
Book two of this science fiction series poses the fascinating what-if question of the incarnation of the One’s son: Did he only come to Earth? Or did he take form on other planets to save their inhabitants from evil?
