Resolution by John Meaney
Resolution, the concluding volume in John Meaneyís acclaimed Nulapeiron Sequence is being published in paperback by Bantam Books on 5th January 2006 (UK Release).
The war against The Blight is over, and the subterranean realms of Nulapeiron have a chance for peace. But revolutionary and war hero, Tom Corcorigan, newly married and longing for the quiet life, knows that a greater force threatens his world: the planet-consuming Anomaly, which has absorbed billions of human and alien beings into itself.
Tomís association with the disembodied Eemurís Head - the flensed and bloody remains of a powerful Seer - changes him into something more than a poverty-stricken Lord. The spacetime-warping science of Seers and Oracles penetrates the heart of reality, bringing new enemies and allies into Tomís life.
And his story crystal, a gift from a mysterious mu-space Pilot, reveals more of the Pilotsí history and true nature, and the existence of their home in a universe no ordinary human being can experience: the strange, shifting, living fractal city that is Labyrinth.
Soon the Anomaly, an evil far more powerful than its offspring Blight, rips into the world, decimating the human realms. Among the free humans who survive in the floating terraformer spheres of Nulapeironís skies, only the forces commanded by Tom Corcorigan have the smallest of chances against this omnipotent invader. For only a Warlord who is no longer quite human, who is willing to sacrifice everything, can deliver humanity from darkness.
