Publisher's Summary

At the age of 17 the young nobleman named Jaibriol Qox became ruler of a vast galactic empire - and lost everything he had ever valued. Born of a clandestine liaison between a renegade daughter of the Skolian Imperialate and a scion of the genetically engineered Eubian Traders, Jai Qox grew up in exile, unaware of the powers that coursed through his noble blood. In the waning days of the bloody Radiance War, which ravaged the galaxy, Jai was captured, and returned to the Traders to play a role as a puppet Emperor in their scheme to consolidate their domination of space.

Now Jai must walk a razor's edge, to seize the power that is his by birthright, without succumbing to its dark seduction, in order to avert a conflagration which threatens to engulf a thousand worlds.

    "enjoyed it"

    I enjoyed this audio book, alltough it retells the story that was already told out of the view of Keldric. But it was nice anyway.
