Commodore Detrelna and the battle cruiser Implacable are sent into Quadrant Blue 9 for the only weapon that can stop them.

About the Author
Stephen Ames Berry’s novels have been published by Ace/Berkley and Tor/Macmillan. His latest novel is the technothriller The Eldridge Conspiracy.

The Battle for Terra Two could have marked mankind’s end.  It still could.  The Kronarins and their Terran allies almost went down under the onslaught of the biofabs' new allies:  AIs—Artificial Intelligences—fearsome cyborgs from humanity’s dawn come at last to kill us all.  Barely defeating AIs and biofabs, the Kronarin battle cruiser Implacable returned to Terra and its home universe, warning of an AI invasion so vast not even the dead Kronarin Empire at its height could have stopped it.

Mankind’s only hope lies in a mythic weapon somewhere out in Blue 9—Quadrant Blue 9—an abandoned cube of space from which no ship’s returned since the Empire’s long ago Fall.  Ordered into Blue 9 after the weapon, Implacable’s crew must first master a horror out of their nightmares, an ancient evil that feeds off the undead it makes of the living.
