Once the center of human expansion into distant space, Jitsu was isolated for the better part of a century. Professor Brando D’Angelo accepts a teaching position on the theocratic planet, drawn by the promise of a new life. But his relationship with architect Tenshi Kuroda, leader of a religious reform movement, will thrust him into a terrifying power struggle that will change his life forever.
