Kare's been hunted all his life. His mother, the cruel Empress, demands that he accept his place as her heir. His father's rebellion want him to stand as a figurehead for their insurgency. When he refuses his mother's demands, she turns her wrath on those he loves. Kare knows he must face her. He returns to Abendau, his mother's city, to confront her. If he defeats her, he can reshape his future; if he fails, he'll face the horror of her vengeance. A far-reaching Space Opera with strong characterisation and dark themes, Abendau explodes from the page.
