In its opening paragraphs, Skyracos rockets to the planet Claous, and the futuristic mining town of Destiny City. Here, a heartless, interplanetary conglomerate mines its own version of blood diamonds, Eternium. When a riot erupts and miners begin to exhibit strange symptoms, the ironclad space corp of Skyracos are called in to restore peace. But nothing can interrupt the precious flow Eternium, not without serious repercussions.
Skyracos mixes pulp, sci-fi action with a good dose of political intrigue, setting forces at odds and then letting the fur fly. It's a unique take on the space marine genre, well worth attention.
