Some years after the events of Great Wall of Mars, the Conjoiners have escaped the solar system and are busy trying to find a new home.
Enter planet Diadem, which the Conjoiners discover has already had human visitors and a settlement. But something went wrong and they’re all dead — or maybe not quite all of them.
And then there’s the worms.
Another great story from Alastair as he feeds us more info on the abilities of Conjoiner minds and we get to know our protagonist, Clavain, a little bit more too.
Available in the collection, Galactic North.
And now, without hesitation, it’s straight into Night Passage, the third book in the Revelation Space Universe.
