From publisher blurb:
Jump to Warp Speed!
Between the dominion of the militaristic Khor and the shapeshifting Faez empire sits Freespace, and unclaimed stretch of inhabited stars threatened by the god-like Inphinites, the transforming Machina, and the vampiric Manes. In recent years, the most notorious champions of Freespace have been an unlikely assortment of heroes: a trigger-happy genetically-augmented mammalian; an enigmatic Arborhulk; the galaxy’s most deadly assassin; a vengeful soldier with nothing to lose; and a scoundrel from the savage world of Earth. They are the best chance Freespace has of remaining free.
God help us all.
