The immortal Emperor can grant a form of eternal
life-after-death, creating an elite known as the Risen, and
so has ruled the eighty worlds unchallenged for sixteen
hundred years. The only thing he fears are the Rix,
machine-augmented humans who worship AI compound minds. They
are dedicated to replacing his prolonged rule with an
eternal cybernetic dynasty of their own.
Brilliant tactician Captain Laurent Zai of the Imperial
Frigate Lynx faces a suicide mission: stopping the next
thrust of the Rix invasion with just his own vessel. While
ship-to-ship combat rages among the stars, Zaiís lover,
Senator Nara Oxham, is caught in a deadly political fencing
match with the Emperor himself. The Emperor has a terrible
secret, a secret Nara is in danger of finding out, a secret
for which he would countenance the killing of worlds.
