Killing of Worlds by Scott Westerfeld

Book Description

#1 "New York Times "bestselling author Westerfeld continues one of the first great space operas of this centuryScott Westerfeld, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Uglies," "Pretties," and "Specials," reached new heights of excitement with "The Risen Empire" and left readers begging for more. He delivers the dazzling payoff in book two, "The Killing of Worlds."The immortal Emperor can grant a form of eternal life-after-death, creating an elite known as the Risen, and so has ruled the eighty worlds unchallenged for sixteen hundred years. The only thing he fears are the Rix, machine-augmented humans who worship AI compound minds. They are dedicated to replacing his prolonged rule with an eternal cybernetic dynasty of their own.Brilliant tactician Captain Laurent Zai of the Imperial Frigate Lynx faces a suicide mission: stopping the next thrust of the Rix invasion with just his own vessel. While ship-to-ship combat rages among the stars, Zai's lover, Senator Nara Oxham, is caught in a deadly political fencing match with the Emperor himself. The Emperor has a terrible secret, a secret Nara is in danger of finding out, a secret for which he would countenance the killing of worlds.
