The universe of Neverness is intriguingly compex, filled with extraordinary beings. There are the Alaloi, who have chosen to return to the Neanderthal state. the Order of Pilots which reworks the laws of time and physics to catapult its members through dense regions of 'thick space'. the Solid State Entity, a vast brain made up of moon-sized biocomputers. and the Ieldra, a legendary race of aliens that seeded the galaxy aeons ago with its DNA and so began the evolutionary cycle.

Against this rich backdrop unfolds the story of young, headstrong Mallory Ringess, a novitiate of the Order of Pilots. Against all odds, he has penetrated the Solid State Entity - and made a stunning discovery.
A discovery that could unlock the secret of immortality hidden among the Alaloi.
