In the 28th Century…


Former freedom fighter Michelangelo Vitalli awakens in prison to discover that eighteen years of his life have vanished. Once he gets rescued from imprisonment, Vitalli begins to search for his past.


The technocratic Human Confederacy must act quickly to end a series of rebel terrorist attacks on Sedona Minor, the popular tourist world at the edge of their territory. Senior Inspector Christopher Dimitri, who has the highest clearance record in Central Investigations' history, must bring the so-called "Sedona Underground" to justice.


With their fates about to collide, Vitalli and Dimitri must come to terms with their pasts... To choose their futures... And the consequences of their choices will change the Confederacy forever.
