Summary
"In the year 3594, humanity is little more than a memory -- a legend of the distant past. The Capeks, a race of artificial creatures originally created by humans, have inherited the galaxy and formed a Utopian civilization built on the shared goal of tirelessly working to prepare for their makers' reappearance. For though the human race is the stuff of legend, one thing is certain to the Capeks: humanity will return. When Dagir, a Boston cop, lies dying in the line of duty only to be reborn the next moment as a Capek, she must find her place in this intricate society. That vaguely remembered "death" was but the last of hundreds of simulated lives, a distillation process to create her final personality. Now a robot built for rescue and repair, she finds her abilities tested immediately after her awakening, when the large sentient facility that created her is destroyed, marking the only instance of murder the peaceful Capeks have ever known. For the first time in their history, conflicting philosophies clash, setting off a violent civil war that could lay waste to the stars themselves. Dagir sets off on a quest to find the killers and discovers much more than she seeks. As the layers of the Capeks' past peel away to reveal their early origins, centuries-old truths come to light. And the resulting revelations may tear humanity's children apart -- and destroy all remnants of humankind." -- back cover
