This "New York Times" Notable Book of the Year explores the second age of space colonization, when one of Earth's first colonies has restored humanity at a high price—a monopoly over all human commerce. When a satellite is attacked by corporate raiders, a woman flees to a ship bound for the Up-and-Out and is about to discover a secret the universe may not be ready to face.
