Xeelee: Vengeance, Hardback Book

Description

Half a million years in the future, on a dead, war-ravaged world at the centre of the Galaxy, there is a mile-high statue of Michael Poole.Poole, born on Earth in the fourth millennium, was one of mankind's most influential heroes.

He was not a warrior, not an emperor. He was an engineer, a builder of wormhole transit systems.

But Poole's work would ultimately lead to a vast and destructive conflict, a million-year war between humanity and the enigmatic, powerful aliens known as the Xeelee.

The Xeelee won, but at a huge cost. And, defeated in a greater war, the Xeelee eventually fled the universe.

Most of them.A handful were left behind, equipped with time travel capabilities, their task to tidy up: to reorder history more to the Xeelee's liking.

That million-year war with humankind was one blemish.

It had to be erased. And in order to do that, a lone Xeelee was sent back in time to remove Michael Poole from history . . .
