A conspiracy, led by CEO-turned-politician, Gregory Andrews, has succeeded in taking over the Applied Interstellar Corporation (AIC), and its stockpile of the element that enables interstellar travel. But Andrews didn’t get everything. AIC’s leader, Jans Mikel, escaped to a hidden base where he harbors the company’s greatest secrets, the most profound of which is that humans are not alone in the galaxy.
As Andrews seeks to finish AIC, Mandi Nkosi sets off to help Jans forge new alliances. Their journey takes them beyond the realms of known space and uncovers revelations about humanity that shake the foundations of science. Meanwhile, AIC soldier Grae Raymus, commanding a resistance aimed at buying time, discovers that Andrews is little more than a pawn. With humanity’s future hanging in the balance, Mandi and Grae fight to save the people they love, and with them, all of mankind.
