The war against the Blight is over, and the subterranean realms of Nulapeiron have a chance for peace. But for Tom Corcorigan – revolutionary and war hero – there can be no respite. His association with Eemur’s Head, the flensed and bloody remains of a powerful Seer, is transforming him into something more than a poverty-stricken Lord and his growing understanding of the space-time-warping science of Seers and Oracles brings new enemies and allies into his life.
And all the while, his story crystal, a gift from a mysterious Pilot so long ago, reveals more of the history and true nature of these strange Mu-space travellers – not least the existence of their home in a universe no ordinary human being can experience: the shifting, living fractal city that is Labyrinth. But rising ominously above all this is the greater force that now threatens Tom’s world. It is called the Anomaly and it is all-consuming – absorbing billions of beings, both human and alien, into itself. As this new evil rips into Nulapeiron and begins to crush its human realms, only the forces commanded by Tom Corcorigan have the slightest chance of survival against this overwhelming invader. For it has been foretold that only a warlord who is no longer quite human, who is willing to sacrifice everything, can deliver humanity from total darkness… Revealing the shattering secret of the Oracles’ creation, Resolution concludes John Meaney’s trilogy of Nulapeiron tales featuring Tom Corcorigan and brings his story to a triumphant climax.
