It is the end of all things. Ancient ships sweep across the galaxy, conquering worlds with ease. No one can stop them. It seems to be only a matter of time before Pierce and his allies control everything.
Meanwhile, the Oracle, Pierce’s mysterious advisor, has plans of its own. His own closest friend is questioning his motives.

One thing slowly becomes clear: If they can’t put aside their differences and concentrate on the true threat, extinction awaits all.
