Description

Ellen May Ngewthu is a young woman with centuries of experience, a soldier and leader of the Cassini Division, the elite defense force of the utopian Solar Union. Here in the twenty-fourth century, the forts of the Division, in orbit around a mysteriously transformed Jupiter, are the front line in humanity's long standoff with the unknowable post-humans—godlike and remote beings descended from the people who transformed themselves with high technology centuries ago... The post-humans' capacities are unknown... but we know they disintegrated Ganymede, we know they punched a wormhole into Jovian space, and we know that the very surface of the solar system's largest planet has been altered by their incomprehensible artifacts. Worst of all, we know that they have been bombarding the solar system with powerful data viruses for generations... Now Ellen has a plan to rid humanity of this threat once and for all. But she needs to recruit the right people to her cause and convince them to mistrust the post-humans as much as she does.
