From publisher blurb:
District 268 with its varied polities and existence in the shadow of the Imperium to trailing, and the Zhodani to Coreward is always a region where travelling can be, well, interesting. In the years prior to the Fifth Frontier War, these tensions can be exacerbated by any number of factions having their own agendas: political, personal, provocative. The Cold War between Trexalon and Collace doesn’t help matters. Close to the borders with the Trojan Reaches a desperate group of individuals is about to encounter a motley collection of merchants just trying to make their way.
Stowaways, agents, an orphan and the odd former slaver or two... it's all happening against a backdrop of disability in various forms and possibly even a wartime atrocity.
