Commonwealth Universe, Age 2: Volume 1: Undying

Not rated yet

The planet Vidan, presumed to be the center of First Civ's government, degraded into a world ruled by superstition and fear, filled with petty city-states, and battles fought with gunpowder and swords. Tales of traveling to the stars were considered fables and mad dreams within only two generations of the onslaught of the Downfall. Colony worlds were abandoned to starve or die of mutated diseases. The genetically manipulated inhabitants abandoned there by their creators/masters were left to build their own way of life.

Marnya joins the Order and sets out on her journey of learning, healing and leadership.

As the years go by, a new enemy arises from their own ranks--Undying who believe they are destined to become rulers, not guardians. They want to dominate, to enslave the ordinary Humans around them. And if they have to destroy the Order to accomplish their goals, they will...
