Description de l’éditeur
The Tarazet Galactic Star Empire should be a realm without hunger, disease, violence or suffering, with plenty for all, but the greed of those at the top, terraforming entire planets just so they can hunt the best game is sucking the vitality out of the economy. Uncaring nobles laughing in the faces of their starving subjects is creating the conditions for... rebellion.
Over the course of three books, the most prominent young scientist in the empire, a young soldier and a humble logistics robot are sucked into this rebellion, then rise to become its leaders. This sci-fi series is the story of their adventures.
There are plenty of space battles, unknowable aliens, and galactic power struggles in the series. These are not dry old books full of visionary concepts but dull on action, plot, and characters. It is a series that combines the action of militaristic science fiction with the heart of good space opera.
The only reason the heroes - Altia, Knave and Jay - have any chance of surviving in the face of the repression of the Tarazet Star Empire is the alien starship they discover. Then, what this spaceship is capable of becomes apparent through the second book, and in the third installment the entire star empire and at least one neighboring alien culture is slowly destabilized by this new force in the galaxy. It seems, at last, as though the empire might topple, bringing a new utopia, or possibly just political chaos in its wake.
