The final instalment in Ada Palmer's award-winning, critically acclaimed Terra Ignota series.


The
long years of near-utopia have come to an abrupt end. Peace and order
are now figments of the past. Corruption, deception, and insurgency hum
within the once steadfast leadership of the Hives, nations without fixed
location.


The heartbreaking truth is that for decades, even
centuries, the leaders of the great Hives bought the world's stability
with a trickle of secret murders, mathematically planned. So that no
faction could ever dominate. So that the balance held. The Hives' facade
of solidity is the only hope they have for maintaining a semblance of
order, for preventing the public from succumbing to the savagery and
bloodlust of wars past. But as the great secret becomes more and more
widely known, that facade is slipping away. Just days earlier, the world
was a pinnacle of human civilization. Now everyone? Hives and hiveless,
Utopians and sensayers, emperors and the downtrodden, warriors and
saints scramble to prepare for the seemingly inevitable war.
