Publisher's Summary

Her word is her weapon.

Exhilarating and original, Every Sky a Grave tells an epic tale of truth and power on the greatest canvas there is: outer space.

For fans of Anne Leckie and Star Wars comes an explosive and ambitious story about the power of words set far in the future, far away – but with a message about truth that hits home. Her word is her weapon.

Her word is her weapon.

Mankind has spread out and conquered the galaxy by mastering the fundamental language of the universe. With the right training, the right application of words, truth itself can be rearranged.

Language is literally power.

Peace reigns now. Order reigns.

For if a planet deviates too far from what the authorities plan, an agent is sent out to correct that. To quietly, and with great skill, end that world.

One such agent is Elyth - a true believer.

But on a clandestine mission to stop an uprising before it can truly begin, Elyth comes to realise she hasn’t been told the whole truth herself. There’s so much she doesn’t know. How can there be people whose truth is different to that of the authorities?

Elyth’s faith in the powers that be is shaken just when she needs it most. While on her mission, a dark and unknown presence makes itself known at the edges of the galaxy - and it cannot be controlled, for nobody knows its name....

For fans of Anne Leckie and Star Wars comes an explosive and ambitious story about the power of words set far in the future, far away - but with a message about truth that hits home.
