The AftermathBook - 2007
"In the wake of the Asteroid Wars that tore across the solar system, Victor Zacharias makes his living running the ore-carrier Syracuse. With his wife and two children, he plies the Asteroid Belt, hauling whatever cargo can be found. When the Syracuse stumbles into the middle of a military attack on the habitat Chrysalis, Victor flees in a control pod to draw the attacker's attention away from his family. Now, as his wife and children plunge into the far deeps of space, Victor has been rescued by the seductive Cheena Madagascar. He must do her bidding if he's to have a prayer of ever seeing his family again." "Elverda Apacheta is the solar system's greatest sculptor. The cyborg Dorn was formerly Dorik Harbin, the ruthless military commander responsible for the attack on Chrysalis. Their lives and destinies have been linked by their joint discovery of the alien artifact that earlier had profoundly affected industrialist Martin Humphries. Similarly transformed by the artifact's mysterious powers, Apacheta and Dorn now prowl the Belt, determined to find the bodies of the many victims of Harbin's atrocities in order to give them proper burials." "Kao Yuan is the captain of Viking, owned by Martin Humphries. Yuan is determined to kill Dorn and Apacheta because they know too much about the artifact and its power over him. But Viking's second-in-command, Tamara Vishinsky, appears to have the real power onboard ship. When Viking catches up to Apacheta and Dorn, their confrontation begins a series of events involving them, the Zacharias family, and Martin Humphries and his son in the transformation of the human solar system"--Book jacket.
