"Having colonized the worlds of the spiral arm, mankind's three branches - the Terran Hansa, starship-dwelling Roamers, and telepathic Green Priests - are certain the galaxy is theirs for the taking.

Instead, incredible armadas of invincible, city-sized warships suddenly emerge from the galaxy's billions of gaseous worlds with a single mission - to annihilate every last human being in the universe..." - back cover.
