(From the publisher):
Imagine a future that today’s generation can only dream of. A trillion people live under the gentle rule of The Assembly on over a thousand inhabited worlds. Peace and stability have reigned unbroken for nearly twelve thousand years, and war and evil are merely ancient history.
But everything is about to change. On Farholme—a Made World at the very edge of the Assembly—strange things are happening. A girl sees an impossible creature, a stranger from Ancient Earth arrives in response to a troubling vision, and people begin to say, do, and think things that oppose everything The Assembly stands for. And slowly, incredulously, a handful of men and women come to recognize the unthinkable: Evil has returned once more, and it must be fought.
