The second novel in a grand space opera series from Australian author Marianne de Pierres, who scored notable success with her Parish Plessis novels. The Sentients of Orion sequence began with Dark Space and is now followed by Chaos Space, issued in paperback original this month by Orbit.
"Having fled the invasion on Araldis, Mira Fedor travels to the nearest Orion League planet seeking aid for her devastated world, but the authorities seem more interested in stealing her bio-ship, Insignia, than in rendering help. While Mira flees from world to world, Araldis burns. The more Mira uncovers, them more mysteries she finds: why is the initiate Tekton taking such extreme measures just to acquire a mineral alloy? Why do so many of the protagonists in this galaxy-wide drama have links to the Stain Wars? And what part does the Sole Entity – literally, God – have to play . . . ?"
