On a planet at the edge of a galaxy long torn by
devastating wars, a man is assigned to monitoring duties - to detect any
signs of aggressiveness that might trigger another conflict. In fulfilling
this task, Lewis Orne, interplanetary troubleshooter, discovers in himself
extrasensory powers of awesome potential.
Because of his powers he is invited to join the company of "gods" and faces complex and perilous rites of passage in deep space.
