Thousands of years sooner or later, humanity isn't any longer on my own in a universe the place a mind's strength depends upon its situation in area, from superintelligent entities within the go beyond, to the restricted minds of the Unthinking Depths, the place simply uncomplicated creatures, and know-how, can functionality. not anyone is aware what unusual strength partitioned area into those "regions of thought," but if the warring Straumli realm use an old Transcendent artifact as a weapon, they unwittingly unharness an grand strength that destroys hundreds of thousands of worlds and enslaves all average and synthetic intelligence.

Fleeing this galactic possibility, Ravna crash lands on an odd global with a ship-hold jam-packed with cryogenically frozen young children, the single survivors from a destroyed space-lab. they're taken captive via the Tines, an alien race with a harsh medieval tradition, and used as pawns in a ruthless energy struggle.
