Who will inherit this new Earth?

The last remnants of the human race left a dying Earth, desperate to find a new home among the stars. Following in the footsteps of their ancestors, they discover the greatest treasure of the past age – a world terraformed and prepared for human life.

But all is not right in this new Eden. In the long years since the planet was abandoned, the work of its architects has borne disastrous fruit. The planet is not waiting for them, pristine and unoccupied. New masters have turned it from a refuge into mankind’s worst nightmare.

Now two civilizations are on a collision course, both testing the boundaries of what they will do to survive. As the fate of humanity hangs in the balance, who are the true heirs of this new Earth?span

A brilliant, large-scale sci-novel Tens of thousands of years after Earth has self-destructed in a horrific civil war, humanity has once again reached for the stars. In the Old Empire, which spanned Earth and several of the solar system’s gas giant moons, near-lightspeed interstellar ships had begun to spread through the galaxy, terraforming the most likely planets where Homo sapiens might find new homes. Now, the technology of the Empire has been lost to time, mere hints of it accessible only to the classicists who labor to…
