Opis wydawcy
Scott Westerfeld, the acclaimed author of “Fine Prey”, “Polymorph”, and “Evolution’s Darling”, reached new heights of excitement in “The Risen Empire”, and left readers begging for more. Now he comes through with the dazzling payoff in book two of “Succession”, “The Killing of Worlds”.
Captain Laurent Zai of the Imperial frigate “Lynx” is a walking dead man. Unjustly held responsible for the death of the Child Empress, sister of the immortal Emperor, Zai has been sent to fight an unwinnable battle. The “Lynx” must stop a vastly superior Rix ship from reaching the planet Legis, a suicide mission that will almost certainly end in oblivion for Captain Zai and his crew.
On the planet Legis below, a Rix compound mind—a massive emergent AI formed from every computer on the planet—as been isolated by their Imperial blockade. But the mind has guided a lone Rix commando, Herd, to the planet’s frozen north, and will soon order a desperate attempt to seize a polar communications array and break the blockade. Herd is a single warrior against an Imperial army, but moving silently behind her is the intelligence of an entire planet.
Ten light-years away, Captain Zai’s true love, the psychic (some say mad) Senator Nara Oxham is engaged in a deadly game of political intrigue. From her position on the Emperor’s War Council, Senator Oxham must find a way to forestall the Emperor’s final solution if the blockade is broken: a nuclear strike to destroy the compound mind, which will also kill millions of Imperial citizens. She suspects that the Emperor has a hidden weakness discovered, by the mind, a secret so dangerous to his immortal dynasty that to prevent its discovery the Emperor is willing to countenance the ultimate crime. . .
The killing of worlds.
With this powerful conclusion to the first story arc of Succession, Scott Westerfeld confirms 0his stature as one of the leading writers of high space opera.
