de Christopher M Knight
Sobre o livro
AN EXPANDING SOVEREIGN EMPIRE, THE CONSORTIUM, RACES AGAINST THE MARSIAN REGIME, THE LUNE HIGH MINISTRY, AND EARTH'S UN, TO COLONISE AND CONTROL THE SOLAR SYSTEM. THE CONSORTIUM CROSSES BOUNDARIES AND BREAKS LAWS-DEFYING BOTH SCIENCE AND RELIGION-IN ITS VORACIOUS PURSUIT.
THEY CARVED A GOD FROM ONES AND ZEROS. IT SEARCHES FOR THE DEVIL.
A FABRICATED PLANET, SHROUDED BEHIND A VEIL AND HIDDEN FOR CENTURIES AT THE SOLAR SYSTEM'S FRINGES, LIES HOME TO A DESCENDANT COLONY OF HUMANITY'S FUGITIVES.
THOUGH BASTION'S ORIGINAL INHABITANTS ARE LONG GONE, SOMETHING STIRS BENEATH THE SURFACE.
TAREV is a harvester. A moonblood. His life, indebted to the Consortium, entails trudging along the harsh, icy surface of Saturn's moon, Titan. A life of struggle, harvesting methane for the rest of the Solar System to use, until he and his brother, Sevastian, discover something buried deep within the ice.
Something that will change their lives forever.
ELIA is a Weightless, a gravity wielder, after being injected with the biometal that litters the alien planet on which she lives. She's also the genetic reprint of an ancient hero, a Catalyst, who paid the ultimate sacrifice over two hundred years ago. Elia struggles to live up to the expectations that come with being a Weightless. She struggles to live normally, while wearing the face of a Catalyst.
She struggles to live, when her planet refuses to die.
