Big Pete and the Swede. Two miners, made rich by their excavation of the asteroid belt. Maggie, Dolores and Aramintha. Three women, making a living in the Viridian System any way they can, and mostly with miners. It’s a long way from anywhere, and especially from the domineering Imperium and their foes, the Federation.
Our miners have secret destinies, secret from each other, and even themselves. So who’s leaving the strange messages that lead the five of them to a planet with an oracle?
Kidnap, archaeology, imperial politics, and a chase from the centre of the galaxy to its very extremes… and five pieces of a legendary weapon scattered around the galaxy.
