The Hand of Empyrean introduces Pyr, a deadly alien assassin cursed with immortality and no end of impossible missions.
The battle for Sol is now
The sphere ship gave Earth knowledge of the universe, but it came with a warning to stay away from the Star. After losing two children to the First Contact Federation, Empyrean sends a fleet of plasma ships and allies to Sol. Their one mission: to destroy humanity.
Can Earth defend itself against the imminent threat, or will they be destroyed so soon after starting to explore the universe around them?
