Here in the twenty-fourth century, the forts of the Division, in orbit around Jupiter, are the front line in humanitys long standoff with the unknowable post-humans - godlike beings descended from the men and women who transformed themselves with high technology centuries ago.The post-humans capacity are unknown...but we know they disintegrated Ganymede, we know they punched a wormhole into Jovian space, and we know that the very surface of the solar systems largest planet has been altered by them. Worse, we know that they have been bombarding the inner solar system with powerful data viruses for generations.Now Ellen has a plan to rid humanity of this threat once and for all. But she needs to convince others to mistrust the post-humans as much as she does. Her quest will take her to the mid-Atlantic towers of Solar Union Earth, to the green ruins of London, and, in the farthest reaches of human space, to the long-separated libertarian colony of New Mars. In the process, much will be revealed - about history, about power, and about what it is to be human.
