The series is set in our solar system of the far future that has seen vast, powerful Empires rise and fall and even the planets shattered and remade. Now many small planetoids orbit the now faint star, populated by human and alien alike. Shadows of past civilisations are present in strange, lost technologies while the skulls of even stranger aliens are highly prized as navigational aids.
It's a dangerous place, with ruthless pirates patrolling space, looting small planetoid "baubles" for their treasures of lost tech.
Two sisters, Arafura Ness and Adrana are fated to uncover the truth behind the Occupation, a truth that might just bring about the next fall.
