by Christopher Paolini
Tor Books, September 2020
You flew on the wings of dragons, now soar into a sea of stars. . . .
During a routine survey mission on an uncolonized planet, xenobiologist Kira Navárez finds an alien relic that thrusts her into the wonders and nightmares of first contact. Epic space battles for the fate of humanity take her to the farthest reaches of the galaxy and, in the process, transform not only her—but the entire course of history.
