Blood. There was blood everywhere. It trickled in rivulets. It ran in torrents. It was intermingled with a hundred other fluids of what had once been living organisms. Now there was just a heap of dissected organs, bones, exoskeletons, skin, antennae. Thick slabs of tissue lay in open trays, mucus and slime dripped from towering racks of offal. The smell of excreta was everywhere.

It looked like a charnel house. It looked like a vision of Hell. But this was Heaven...

In the grand tradition of Gregory Benford and Greg Bear, internationally popular scientists and acclaimed authors Dr. Ian Stewart and Dr. Jack Cohen come together again to create a brilliant new novel of huge, speculative ideas and suspenseful adventure.

Across the vast cosmos, a diverse array of creatures must band together to defeat the galaxy's deadliest and most destructive force... Heaven.

On the ocean planet No-Moon, Second-Best Sailor contentedly lives the life of a mariner plying his trade with visiting space dwelling Neanderthals. When his reefwife discovers that a mission fleet has targeted the homeworld for conversion, his comfortable lifestyle vanishes in an instant.

Servant-of-Unity XIV Samuel has cheerfully devoted his life to the grand wonder that is Cosmic Unity, and all he desires is to help spread its message of universal harmony to a grateful galaxy. But Samuel's awe turns to horror when he discovers Cosmic Unity's darkest truth.

At its core, Cosmic Unity is a lovely, seductive gentle religion stating that all creatures - whether born of flesh, silicon, superconducting gases, or magnetic plasma - are equal and deserve tolerance. Yet over 22,500 years and spread by a vast hierarchy, the simple concept has mutated into a malignant and violent memeplex - heretics will not be tolerated.

Bereft of faith and rebelling against the Ecclesiarchs, Samuel is shattered and confused when he stumbles upon Second-Best-Sailor, fleeing from his threatened home to a potential new habitat. Flung together by fate and supported by the Neanderthals' host of traders, Second-Best-Sailor and Samuel plot a kamikaze plan to fight off the invaders. Along the way they will need the help of the unlikeliest and most fascinating of allies.

But can they bring down an idea that destroyed everything across tens of thousands of light-years?
