WILL THEY LISTEN - BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE?
Humanity's sprawling empire is on the verge of collapse. Its trading route between the stars is vanishing, leaving planets stranded. And billions of lives will be lost unless desperate measures are taken. Emperox Grayland II, the Interdependency's ruler, is ready to take those measures. But even this may not be enough. Some believe the collapse of the Flow is a myth - or an opportunity to ascend to power.
For while Grayland prepares for disaster, others prepare for civil war. And this war will be fought in the halls of power, between titans of industry and in places of worship as much as in space. Nothing about this power struggle will be straightforward . . . and all of human civilization is at stake.
