Archivist Luc Gabion is dying, slowly, victim of a forced technology implant while on assignment. He brought down a powerful terrorist, but at great cost, and this new tech brings unexpected dangers.

Luc must investigate the Thousand Emperors, rulers of the Tian Di’s stellar empire. One of their number has been murdered and he needs to find the killer. But the technology he now carries supersedes anything he's encountered, and Luc sees things he knows are forbidden. As the truth emerges, he’s in trouble. Any of these leaders could be guilty – and could execute him on a whim. Worse, the murder victim was brokering the coming Reunification. Two great warring civilisations, separated for centuries, due to unite in a new age of peace.

But it becomes clear that someone will do anything to ensure that day never comes.

Publishers Weekly Review

03 November 2014 – This dark and cautionary stand-alone sequel to Final Days careens through a future world that has survived one apocalypse, but seems to be heading toward another. The intricately crafted plot is centered on the Tian Di, a collection of worlds that represents half of a human race fractured after a disastrous run-in with alien technology. While the other human collective, called the Coalition, thrives and evolves, the Tian Di suffers under the stagnant and benighted leadership of the Temur Council, which rules through fear while aggregating unto itself all privilege and power, including the ability to live nearly forever. When a Council member is murdered, the Council turns to Archivist Luc Gabion for help. Gabion is soon overwhelmed, enmeshed in intrigue after intrigue, not knowing whom to trust. Eventually, he is led to re-evaluate his own understanding of history as well as his political allegiances as he slowly grasps the enormity of the danger facing both the Tian Di and the Coalition. The sweep of this book is impressive, and Gibson deftly keeps the action going and the reader enthralled right through the unexpected but thoroughly satisfying ending.
