A warrior battles hydra
The Blood Plague liquefies eyes
Ecoterrorists struggle against ecological ruin
From the pitch Abyss, Chaos corrupts our dreams
Psychnet, a network of quantum artificial intelligences (QAIs) owned by corporations and linked to all human minds, persuade consumers to shop Earth towards environmental oblivion. Against them stand the Preachers of Chaos, ecoterrorists who battle to save Earth's species and ecosystems, and the lifeforms of planets that humankind colonises.
Meanwhile, Gaia, a QAI allied with the Preachers of Chaos, guides the colonization starship, New Hope, towards a distant planet. Gaia shapes the collective dream of the interstellar travellers in stasis to create an ecocentric people that will live in harmony with the new world's environment. But as a synthetic plague erupts and spreads across Earth, an explosion destroys Gaia, leaving those aboard New Hope vulnerable. Into the star travellers' shared dream a shadow QAI steps, who conjures ogres, hydra and a devil queen with which to enslave and torture.
Can the Preachers of Chaos save the billions on Earth infected with the Blood Plague? And can they free those in stasis aboard New Hope from an eternal nightmare?
A dark, dystopian science fantasy epic begins . . .
