An epic SF space opera on a truly grand scale - a brilliant novel to follow the success of MARROW.
Some 10 million years in the future, in a galaxy heavily populated by humans and other advanced species, a thousand trustworthy humans and their cloned offspring have been granted an incredible power that they may preserve a peace that has endured for eons. They can build worlds wherever they wish and can terraform any wasteland. But the arrival of a woman as old as the great peace itself brings uncertainty and fear. For she brings with her a warning: the tale of an ancient crime that threatens to destroy the peace that has been so carefully crafted.
A far-future epic of god-like humans and their colossal blunders, SISTER ALICE is a novel of incredible imagination from the author of the acclaimed MARROW.
