Death isn't all it's cracked up to be in the future - and, sometimes, neither is the life that follows death. Rear Admiral Evliir Mortalae D'Shan, grown old and died in service to the Valhallan Navy, awakens to find herself five centuries out of her time, and her world engulfed by the most dramatic political and social change in it's history. Meanwhile, the Europans who awakened her, intending to use here as a weapon, still lurk amoung the stars, an invisible enemy with deadly secrets. All Mortalae wants to do is go home again - but home and the happy life that went with it ended five centuries ago, with a terrorist's bomb. Now, she finds herself trapped in a strange, strange future she can barely comprehend, and at the focal point of a political and social crisis with ramifications far greater than she had ever dreamed. Can D'Shan lead her people though the coming crisis, and somehow manage to survive? And if she does, can she, herself, find happiness, trapped and alone in an alien future?
