  • It was supposed to be a simple test flight, one that pilot Ariane Austin was on only as a last-ditch backup; intelligent, superhumanly fast automation would handle the test activation and flight of humanity’s first faster-than-light vessel.

    But when the Sandrisson Drive activated, every automated system crashed, the nuclear reactor itself shut down, and only the reflexes and training of a racing pilot saved the test vessel Holy Grail from crashing into the impossible wall that had appeared before them… a wall which is just part of a monstrous enclosure surrounding a space twenty thousand kilometres across.

    With all artificial intelligence’s inert and their reactor dead, they had to find some other source of power to reactivate the Sandrisson Drive and - hopefully - take them home. And that was only the beginning. As Ariane, Dr. Simon Sandrisson, darkly enigmatic power engineer Marc C. DuQuesne, and the rest of the Holy Grail’s crew explore the immense artefact, they discover that they are not alone!

    Surrounded by alien factions, each with its own secret plans and motivations, some wielding powers so strange as to be magical, Ariane sets out to beat the Arena at its own game!
