The sphere is alien in origin but has been controlled by Man for millennia. A legend as old as the stars rules this constructed world: when the seventh seventh seventh human heptarch is crowned, he will be the Kristos and will bring either salvation or destruction.
Patience is the only daughter of the rightful heptarch, but she, like her father, serves the usurper who has destroyed her family, for she believes that duty to one's race is more important than duty to one's self. But the time for prudence has passed, and Patience must journey to the heart-soul of this planet to confront her own destiny and her world's.
