about

The year is 10,515 AD. The Hyades Armada, traveling at near lightspeed, will reach Earth in just four centuries to assess humanity''s value as slaves. For the last 8,000 years, two opposing factions have labored to meet the alien threat in very different ways.

Now, with the countdown to the Hyades'' arrival nearing its end, del Azarchel and Montrose square off for what is to be their final showdown for the fate of Earth, a battle of gunfire and cliometric calculus; powered armor and posthuman intelligence.
