The last known human searches the galaxy for
companionship in a brilliant standalone novel from the
legendary author of the Pip & Flinx series.
Once Homo sapiens reigned supreme, spreading from
star system to star system in an empire that encountered no
alien life and thus knew no enemy . . . save itself. As had
happened many times before, the basest, most primal human
instincts rose up, only this time armed with the advanced
scientific knowledge to create a genetically engineered
smart virus that quickly wiped out humanity to the last man.
That man is Ruslan, the sole surviving human being in the
universe. Rescued from the charnel house of his home planet
by the Myssari—an intelligent alien race—Ruslan spends his
days as something of a cross between a research subject and
a zoo attraction. Though the Myssari are determined to
resurrect the human race, using Ruslan’s genetic material,
all he wants for himself and his species is oblivion. But
then the Myssari make Ruslan an extraordinary offer: In
exchange for his cooperation, they will do everything in
their considerable power to find the lost home world of his
species—an all-but-mythical place called Earth—and, perhaps,
another living human.
Thus begins an epic journey of adventure, danger,
heartbreak, and hope, as Ruslan sets out in search of a
place that may no longer exist—drawn by the slimmest yet
most enduring hope.
