From back cover: Ellen May Ngewthu is a soldier and leader of the Cassini Division, the elite defense force of the utopian Solar Union. Here in the 24th century, the forts of the Division, in orbit around Jupiter, are the front line in humanity's long standoff with the unknowable post-humans--godlike beings descended from the men and women who transformed themselves with high technology centuries ago.
Now Ellen has a plan to rid humanity of this threat once and for all. Her quest will take her to the mid-Atlantic towers of Solar Union Earth, to the green ruins of London, and, in the farthest reaches of human space. In the process, much will be revealed--about history, power, and what it is to be human.
"Deliciously ironic, brilliantly imagined, MacLeod's witty and intelligent yarn packs a tremendous wallop. More, please!"--Kirkus Reviews
