Two billion years after our solar system explodes (long after human life itself has become extinct on Earth), alien beings reincarnate humanity from its fossilized DNA that drifts as debris in the void of deep space. These new generations of men and women are to serve as bait in a battle to the death between the Rimstalker, mankind's reanimator, and the zotl, horrific creatures who feed vampire-like on the suffering of intelligent lifeforms.
The reborn are told: 'You owe no debt to the being that roused you to this second life.' But humans choose sides as humans will, embroiling themselves in a war of titanic proportions...
Set in the artificial planetary system of Chalco-Doror, a vast cosmic machine, The Last Legends of Earth is a gripping saga of struggle against alien control. It is also imaginative world-building of the highest order and on the grandest scale.
