After 35,000 years, the existence of the Empire is now secured. The Veroms have sent a man back in time, so he could found an alternative society based on Harmony. This journey is the main part of the process called the Covery. Much later, the Imperials left Earth, keeping it under close watch to make sure that history would follow its rightful course. The circle is finally complete. The man has departed and nothing can jeopardize his endeavor now. The future no longer depends on the past. Contact with Earth must be reestablished, the conquest of the newly claimed galaxy of Magellan must be dealt with, the restlessness of the Republic of Comporellon must be kept at bay...and internal trouble is brewing. A whole universe is unfolding in front of us, in which the characters and ways of thinking are quite different from those we know. The clash of civilizations promises to be devastating.

Review:

"A science fiction work packed with adventure and imagination, offering an original insight into the future, and giving food for thought about the evolution of our society, of human relations, the political system and sexuality, all the issues that are dear to JF Mopin. A must-read!" --Rodolphe Maix, author of La Cote

"Jean-François Mopin has created a whole universe, complete with its mythology and inner logics. The scope of his insight reminds me of Asimov's work, and his love of women shows in every word." --Bruno Gasnier, editor
