Here’s a brief outline of the novel:
Approximately 1000 years in the future, mankind has colonised the solar system, and as a result has experienced a new colonial age, where resources are abundant and technology rapidly develops. But this age does not last, and soon factions emerge, jostling for control over territory and resources. Now, after over a century of nearly constant war, the story in the novel takes place.
Ignis, a young soldier of the democratic Inner System (Mars, Earth, the moon, and orbital space cities) joins an elite team of commandos. They have what may be called ‘special abilities’, courtesy of genetic engineering. This team shows promise for turning the tide in an otherwise stagnant conflict and finally defeating the ‘evil’, autocratic Outer System.
Vorith is a war-veteran and a hero of the Inner System. His skill as a pilot is a thing of legend. When the independent political leaders of the Inner System ask him to take control of their entire combined military in a grandiose attempt to abruptly end the war, the ideological implications are hard to ignore… and so are the subsequent temptations for the man finding himself with the loyalty of an army.
