(From the publisher):
In the 25th century, the human species sent a fleet of robot probes on voyages of discovery. Their objective was to find another planet suitable for human habitation.
Ninety years later, across the empty oceans of space, the Tau Ceti probe reported success.
Now, in the year 2531, a human expedition led by Captain Leonie Strider sets off from Jupiter orbit to claim humanity's first colony world outside the Solar System. But their progress is rudely halted by a hyperspace portal which snatches them millions of parsecs from home - and lands them in the middle of a galactic conflict. They must decide whether to stay and fight or try to rediscover the Solar System. But first they must survive...
Paul Barnett's wide-screen space opera mixes the epic colour and action of STAR WARS with the sophistication of Iain Banks' Culture novels.
