Macmillan, Dec 9, 2001 - Fiction - 256 pages
The human race has settled the solar system and expanded out among the stars. In this bizarre, mysterious, and colorful future, the solar system-and indeed human civilization itself-were transformed by nanotech storms. At their height, they swept across the planetary surfaces changing everything in their path.

Young Daric has been raised in an isolated enclave on Mars, the clone of a fearsome ruler from the distant past. His identity discovered, the boy is kidnapped and dragged to the quarantined Earth, in search of his progenitor's fabled technologies. Daric escapes and begins a quest across the solar system to discover his fate-which may be the reconquest of a fallen empire.
