The third 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 Chaos Space and is now followed by Mirror Space, issued in paperback original this month by Orbit.

But are they really separate goals? Or are events rushing to a single, terrifying conclusion ...?"
