This book tells the story how the immortal soldiers - soon to be playable in DUST 514 for PS3 - came to be; this includes some revelatory information about the origins of the Sleepers which is one of the high points of the book.
If you're interested in the background lore of EVE Online/DUST 514, I recommend you give this a read. If you aren't, then you can safely give this a miss.
If you like despicable characters that grow on you;
If you want multiple fleets trying to kill each other in space and on planets;
If you like technologically enhanced beings almost unrecognizable as a human;
If you like a secret group doing oversight on all the characters and controlling what they do behind the scenes you WILL LOVE THIS BOOK.
Part of the EVE series this book stands on it's own for plot and character development. No need to read previous books in the series - although I recommend highly that you do.
The story line is that consensus exists that an immortal warrior would decrease the human toll in the many wars, both civil, planetary and star system wide. At least it's consensus within the framework of the book. The combatants include Empress Jamyl of the Amarr, Mordu's Legion of mercenaries for hire, the Federation Fleet, the Ashkone and the Caldari.
Everyone is out for themselves and to stop the others from creating an immortal warrior. When one of the groups suceed the race is on to capture the immortal warrior, called Templar One, and reverse engineer the process for personal gain.
Of course the group that created Templar One knows there is a significant problem associated with the process and is determined to stop the other groups from stealing their technology, regardless of it's flaws.
It all comes to a shocking conclusion in an epic battle in space and on Make System - Planet II: Pikes Landing .
Finally, as a technological bonus to you, the book has QR Code Content built in. Just use your smart phone and additional information becomes available to you. This is not necessary to read the book but just an added bonus
VERY VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Although independent of each other, I highly suggest reading the first novel, The Empyrean Age before this.
Tony Gonzales manages to create high political drama, space opera tragedy and amiable characters into a tale that moves a very pleasant pace. It is Eve, and the reality at play here are cruel, so if that doesn't sound like your cup of tea, maybe pass. But if you've accepted the fact that life in space would be harsh on those attempting to carve out a deeper life, you'll appreciate Gonzales' firm plot direction and his ability to wrap up the story with all the melancholy befitting his characters' lives which are marked by startling brilliance and bitter woe.
