For countless millennia the dreadful Berserker fleets have ranged across the galaxy in a relentless war against all things living.

But the Berserker Wars are over and the threat of the sentient doomsday devices is over. Or is it? The berserkers are back, stronger and more unstoppable than before. And one strange child, half human and half machine, may be humanity's only hope - or its final destroyer.
