Ubu Roy and Beautiful Maria were orphans, born in the depths of space, genetically engineered to be expert star pilots - and more. For Ubu, the agile, strong bossrider of the starship "Runaway," could encompass all of history with his remarkable memory. And Maria, ace star-shooter and cybernetic witch, could hex a computer as easily as she bent the fabric of spacetime in search of the perfect singularity.
Haunted by the holographic ghost of the father who had created them, they dared every law of the universe to make space for themselves in a world run by huge interstellar cartels. Living by their wits on the fringes of space. Daring the odds for the one big score that would set them free.
Then came the day their luck ran out, and Ubu and Maria were forced to flee for the farthest reaches of space. There they discovered an awesome secret and risked everything on one last, desperate gamble that could win them the universe - or destroy them forever.
