Aidan Ray, successful attorney—and psychic—secretly communes with the dead in a fascist puritanical society that would call her “witch” and wipe her mind.
Earth is split into separate warring theocracies who want to dominate the planet. They are one the verge of expanding their conflict into outer space.
Michael Good, an executive who likes to live dangerously, leads a secret insurgency in Aidan’s home state.
Fate places them together, and together, they must face a crisis that could destroy the Earth.
A mediating alien, concerned about the future of their shared universe, has come to Earth. His galaxy is on the verge of making a preemptive strike against Earth, to prevent the spread of a diseased specimen that may have to be eliminated before it infects other worlds—a species that resolves its problems by murdering each other—humans.
He ponders if Earth is worth saving? And asks Aidan and Michael to plead humanity’s case to the Council of the Seven Worlds, before the Earth is destroyed.
But to do that, they must brave the hazardous passage to another galaxy from which they may never return. Or have anything to return to.
