The Ascendancy saga continues…
It has been five years since the Revelation, and Earth is now a member of the Intergalactic Confederation of Planets. Peace has broken out. Climate change has been reversed. Life expectancy has increased. Poverty has just about been wiped out.
The Institute is up and running at the Embassy. Students from around the world have transferred, researchers from major universities are doing sabbaticals, and Confederation technology is being adapted for human use.
However, the enemy has strengthened and gained faster-than-light technology. An initial probing force is on its way, and they have learned what makes Earth so special. A massive invasion is in the works.
Meanwhile, there is trouble afoot in the Confederation. Can Michael and his team prevail?
