During excavations in a deserted temple on the planet moon of Ax an archaeological team unleash a slumbering entity with terrible consequences for its leader. Now awoken, the Nergalrhod, an age old being, forms a strange affinity with the youngest member of the team, shy, studious, Lydia Powell.

The last human star fleet,  badly mauled in its encounter with a mysterious life form known as The Swarm falls back on Ax and resolves to make its final stand against The Swarms relentless advance across the Universe.

When the Nergalrhod tells Lydia of the Aephren, an ancient artefact that can raise the Hammer of the Gods, a weapon powerful enough to crush The Swarm, Lydia joins forces with Faulke, an Empathe and sets out to retrieve the Aephren on a voyage of danger and self awakening.

I selected this as my bed time read because I've so enjoyed other work of yours. I  suspect I will be awake for quite a while.

great start, with some nice shocks and twists. And I like the way you make us interested in Lydia in these first two parts without actually featuring her yet.

How is this possible through the previosly described unwieldy suit? :-)

Very intriguing beginning. So many unanswered questions. Great characters.
