From the back cover.
Beyond the worlds we know lies a universe of wonder and terror. Vast inscrutable alien empires. Breathtaking interstellar leviathans drifting on the dust of dead worlds. Hideous living weapons, bred only for intergalactic war. Ancient god-beings lurking in the darkness between the starts. The universe belongs to those who can face what lies out there.
Beyond the bounds of mere humanity lies the perfection of flesh and soul. Unrivaled minds that see through time, across space, and into the hearts of others. Transcendent souls that warp and reshape reality with a word. Augmented bodies that have conquered death itself. The universe belongs to those who can unlock what lies within.
