When Captain John Maddox and his crew stumble across a colony of lost children, they become the only thing standing between freedom of the solar system and dominance by an artificial intelligence that's out of control.

Attacks against Martian corporate interests within the colonies of the Solar System begin to escalate, leading to the Martian fleet enacting a systematic purge of resistance groups within the Core Worlds who may harbour members of the group calling themselves the 'Children of Earth'.

The crew of the tramp freighter Erstwhile are on the run and soon find themselves drawn into a sequence of events which puts them squarely in the path of a plan to subjugate the people of the Core Worlds, devised and prepared for by the twisted Artificial Intelligence at the heart of the Children of Earth.

With the very freedom of the Core Worlds at stake, Captain Maddox has to deduce the real reason behind the attacks and the AI's desire to return to Earth before it is too late, for both him and the free citizens of the inner worlds.

In the world of Allwyn, humans are almost extinct. A war amongst the gods, mirrored by their progeny led to the downfall of humanity and the banishment of their god. Now, a thousand years later, the remaining humans eke out an existence on the fringes of the vast empire of the dwarves, who have been tasked by their god to oversee them.

In one such settlement, known as the Cradle of the Gods, a young human named Ghile is preparing for his upcoming manhood test and his first Rite of Attrition. The rite is used by the dwarves to seek out humans who show signs of being potential vessels for an insane god’s return. The same rite claimed the life of Ghile’s older brother.

Meanwhile, Almoriz the Sorcerer and his over-confident apprentice, Riff, arrive in Ghile’s village for what seems to be just another of their annual visits. But their arrival triggers a series of events that thrusts Ghile into a prophecy that will mark him as the Stonechosen and unlock in him powers of the gods themselves.

But Ghile is not alone. Others chosen to fulfill the prophecy travel to the Cradle to seek out the new Stonechosen and destroy him.

The time of the Stonechosen has come.
