Talia is a Hero of Pregeor. Or is she? Why are they trying to kill her? Who are her friends? Who are her enemies?
Sunset in Silvana is the first book in a Science Fiction saga of intrigue, horror and adventure, set in a galaxy shared by the Terran Union, the Eranian Empire, the Aelumi Confederacy and others.
Ruine is, as its name suggests, a devastated planet. Millennia ago, during the last great war between the Forerunners and the Ancients, it was a treaty world, a neutral place where a peaceful solution could be tried. Peace failed and the world became a battleground. Its moons were pulverised to form rings, and most of its atmosphere was burnt off.
With a thin sulfurous atmosphere, it was not an attractive prospect for colonisation, but eventually a hardy group of pioneers managed to make its single remaining fertile continent habitable.
Now, tensions between the two major territories on this continent, Zelyna and Telphania, are high. Relations have been difficult since the province of Silvana seceded from Telphania and joined Zelyna. They came to a head when the Zelynan authorities blamed Telphanian dissidents for the disaster at Pregeor. War seems inevitable.
Talia Milanova and her friends had, they had been told, nearly lost their lives helping to evacuate refugees from Pregeor - not that they recalled it, the trauma of the disaster having wiped their memories.
Now, people were trying to kill them, and strange memories were beginning to surface. Who were they really?
