THE CONSPIRACY OF MANKIND'S ORIGINS GOES DEEP.
Kalian Gaines and the remains of humanity are forced to forge a new beginning in a galaxy that doesn't want them. After destruction was wrought across the Conclave, those taking refuge aboard the Gommarian are simply labelled: dangerous.
After a Conclave excavation unearths an object that predates even their ancient society, Kalian Gaines and Li'ara Ducarté are requested to investigate. Perilous is their path, however, taking them deeper into the conspiracy of their origins.
Meanwhile, Roland North has escaped the confines of the Gommarian and taken up the life of a bounty hunter, causing more trouble for both the Conclave and humanity. He must be tracked down before he does something they'll all regret.
Set on different paths, these few will be thrown into the tempest of machinations that began long before humanity learned to walk.
