    Summary

    The year is 9012; the Empire sprawls throughout the galaxy. At its head sits the invulnerable, ancient Empress; at its foot lie legions of soldiers, lawkeepers, and criminals alike. Starships of the Imperial Fleet spread across the twelve systems, entrusted with keeping the peace by any means necessary.

    This is the story of the First Alternian Empire, and the people who felled it.

    This is the story of the trial of Vriska Serket, and the legislacerator who won it.

    Summary

    New Town seemed to glitter with a hitherto unseen shimmer now that she had experienced first-hand the ills of Old Town. The luxurious parlors, the elegant dresses, feasts of the highest quality meats and desserts, motorcars and illuminated avenues, all of it seemed to be an existence made of gold and ivory, pearl and gemstone, a world fashioned from the finest cuts of reality decorated and arranged as perfectly as a dream. Jane’s life had been nothing but this splendor for years and years, and she had truly noticed none of it. She breathed it, bathed in it, until only the minor failures of paradise, the occasional fracture in its gilded surface, caught her attention. She was blinded to the brilliance of her own life. Now, the fractures she had looked on with such a critical eye seemed nothing compared to the fissure exposing the rot beneath.
