What price paradise?
The humans called them "Turtles," members of a superior alien race that arrived to conquer Earth. But the conquest was through commerce and trade, the rule benevolent, and the result a time of plenty and tranquility never before seen... as long as the humans stayed in their place. Then; catastrophe. The Mother, the female progenitor of all living Turtles, vanishes.
With no other choice, the Turtles turn to
humans for help - to their science, which the aliens have banned as
blasphemous - and to a man named Krake, the only human qualified to
pilot a Turtle waveship. His quest will unlock the secrets of the
universe and beyond in an incredible journey through dimensions of time
and space that dreamers had imagined, that poets had foretold.
