For over twenty years the colony world of Polaris has been torn asunder by the war between the governing Polaris Alliance and the Order of the Orion Light. The sheer magnitude of the destruction has forced tens of thousands to flee the rubble of their cities and seek sanctuary in pitiful settlements wherever the soldiers aren’t present.
Among these refugees is Anya Lee, a strange woman with unusual abilities, a tragic past, and a dangerous secret. Everyone who comes in contact with her is either frightened or intrigued, especially when she displays signs of violent madness that seems to have no explanation.
Rumors begin to fly about the enigmatic Professor Aaron Ridley, who supposedly created a process to create superhuman soldiers called Gladiators, tasked with ending the war and saving Polaris from the warring factions that are trying to destroy it. He was murdered before he could complete his task and his technology was stolen by the Order to turn to their own uses. But the question remains: where are his original test subjects, and why have they not completed their mission?
As desperation grows for an end to the pointless battles, the citizens of Polaris wonder whether anyone can stop this war. Even a superhuman Gladiator.
