The worst has happened: Fleet is tearing itself apart.
Some of the mutineers see injustice in the unequal spread
of the rejuvenation drugs taht offer virtual immortality
to the rich; others are simply thirsty for power, or for
blood. The Loyalists, meanwhile, fight desperately to
preserve the rule of law in Familias Regnant space.
But when Esmay Suiza-Serrano is unceremoniously booted out
of Fleet, the apparent victim of Family politics, she has
no idea of the whirlwind of conflict into which she is
about to be drawn. As the noose tightens on the galactic
civilization, great battles will be fought and greater
loves affirmed...and old friends will meet their destinies.
