Above the TFR Beijing, now the centrepiece in a flourishing city, the inky void of space is eerily silent. As Commander Melissa Liao recovers from her ordeals, the universe continues its roiling machinations unhindered by her suffering.
The end is coming, but before the final chapter in the Lacuna series begins, the stage must be set and the players must be in their places. So much work is left unfinished and Melissa Liao has more trials to endure before her pain is over.
Before the end of war and steel, Eternity awaits.

Kobolds die every day. Even hatchlings are familiar with death, taught to understand it from an early age. Death is our nursemaid. By the time a hatchling has reached adulthood it has seen a hundred lives ended.
Humans do things differently. Humans avoid talking of death. It is spoken in whispers, avoided in conversation. When they must discuss it they use euphemisms, silly phrases like “passed on” or “sleeping” or “gone away”.
They are hoping, perhaps, they can pretend such euphemisms will not one day apply to them.
Ultimately, though, they always do.
These are some of the hardest times I have ever faced and some of my sweetest joys. I have so many stories to tell but this one should come next. It will take some time.
This is the story of how I came to truly understand death, and what it means to take a life.

- The Gods are Silent, a short story (Coming early 2015!).
Those on the side of progressing humanity through advanced technology have finally triumphed over their oppressors. The unholy war between the small but mighty island realm of Charis and the radical, luddite Church of God's Awaiting has come to an end.
However, even though a provisional veil of peace has fallen over human colonies, the quiet will not last. For Safefold is a broken world, and as international alliances shift and Charis charges on with its precarious mission of global industrialization, the shifting plates of the new world order are bound to clash.
Yet, an uncertain future isn't the only danger Safehold faces. Long-thought buried secrets and prophetic promises come to light, proving time is a merciless warden who never forgets.
“Vast, complex, intricate, subtle, and unlaydownable....The biggest thing in science fiction since Isaac Asimov's Foundation series.”—Dave Duncan on the Safehold series
