Overview

Higen Shijen has created a breakthrough artificial intelligence technology: Shocho. But Shijen cannot possibly guess what role his radical new AI will play in shaping his society, and the future of humanity.

Living in that future on Mars (renamed 'Gongen' by the Asian generations who have colonized there) over three hundred years later, Shijen's direct descendant, Higen Orochito, is trying to determine why--and where--valuable natural resources on Gongen are disappearing. To find the answers, Orochito will have to weave through evidence of conspiracy, Gongen politics, increasing paranoia of Earther or Maverick collusion, and Shocho itself.

Against the backdrop of a fractured humanity far along the path to war, Orochito will risk his reputation and family's legacy to discover a truth that is far bigger than either he or his forefathers could ever have imagined. A truth that brings home the reality that war is inevitable, and 'Grandfather' Shocho intends for the Gongen to be on the winning side...

Featuring popular characters, events, and technology from Decipher, Inc.'s hit trading card game and RPG, WARS™, this series of novellas detail events leading up to the largest battle humans have ever experienced: The Battle of Phobos.
