Merciless. Relentless. Unstoppable.

The first intelligent species to encounter mankind attacked without warning. Merciless. Relentless. Unstoppable. With little hope of halting the invasion, Earth's last roll of the dice was to dispatch three colony ships, seeds of Earth, to different parts of the galaxy. The human race would live on ... somewhere.

150 years later, the planet Darien hosts a thriving human settlement, which enjoys a peaceful relationship with an indigenous race, the scholarly Uvovo. But there are secrets buried on Darien's forest moon. Secrets that go back to an apocalyptic battle fought between ancient races at the dawn of galactic civilization. Unknown to its colonists, Darien is about to become the focus of an intergalactic power struggle where the true stakes are beyond their comprehension. And what choices will the Uvovo make when their true nature is revealed and the skies grow dark with the enemy?

This book is great space opera on a truly Epic Scale. In the future earth is under attack and faces obliteration so we quickly send out three colony ships to different parts of the galaxy. Fast forward 150 years to find out earth actually survived and one of the colony ships landed on a soon to be hotly contested planet that is home to an ancient race.

This book has it all: weird aliens, very cool tech, and stellar new ideas and concepts about how the universe works. Cobley's imagination keeps stunning the reader throughout but never at the sake of character or plot.

Highly recommended to readers of Iain Banks or David Brin.
