Alex Lamb.
Gollancz. 2015

One species. One universe. Two sides.

The human race has spread to the stars. Those few who live in the wastes of space have been forced to adapt themselves with technology and genetic modification.

For the billions left on Earth, trapped in squalor and gripped by a new religious fervour, those who have tampered with the human form are heretics.

And so the unequal war began.

The Earthers have deployed a devastating new weapon. Only one outworlder ship can be spared to investigate this new threat. And on board, his mind linked to the ship's drones and weaponry, is their brand new Roboteer.

What they find will change the universe, and the human race, for ever.
