Previous: Be My Enemy
Everett, Sen, and the Everness crew have arrived on an Alderson Disc, an astronomical megastructure of incredibly strong material reaching from the orbit of Mercury to the orbit of Jupiter. Who could have built such a thing? The Jiju, the dominant species on a plane where the dinosaurs didn’t die out. They evolved, diversified, and have a twenty-five million year technology head-start on humanity. The Everness lands in the the midst of a fight between rival nations, but can anyone be safe among the warring Jiju, and what is the price of their help? In an alien world fast approaching the point of apocalypse, the crew of the Everness is divided. And back in the Plenitude of Known Worlds, Charlotte Villiers gathers allies and works her way deep into the corridors of power.
