IThey who control language control everything.

Language is no longer learned, but streamed. Universal Grammar brain implants are fitted at birth, mandated by law. Big tech controls the world’s last remaining languages for profit, while for the lower soc-ed classes, employment is a thing of the past. Meanwhile, the mysterious Sage, the oldest being in the entire Elyonim controls the Morningstar Collider, and hence all communication between Sempiternal beings.

Lilith King, the flame-haired Interpol detective with the power of soul-reading through touch alone, must prevent the destructive plans of streaming language service companies on Earth. And caught up in a war between  the warrior orders of the ancient planet of Empyrean, the Guardians and Watchers, the survival of the human race hangs in the balance.

In a future where language technology can be used as a tool for mind control, or as a weapon of mass destruction, Lilith must save the human race from annihilation, restore balance to the Elyonim, and mount a quest to save the one she loves, imprisoned in the shadowy realm known as the Chaos.
