Well, in one way it's the story of two people who go through a boatload of hurt, but it's also a story about the empires, and the pirate factions, and how all of us reading this have come to dominate their world. It's almost a travelogue: We get to see Gallentean bodymod conferences, Amarrian convents, Caldari Mind Clash games, and a strange Minmatar exodus. There are the Angels, all marching in step; and Guristas, living their crazy lives. There are the Sansha, in their quiet metal hell. And the Sisters of EVE, trying to save a few souls along the way. They're important to the story.
It's a novel about revenge and redemption, about putting away old things - or settling scores, depending on who you ask - and moving on. About change, really, which is a concept every EVE player will be intimately familiar with. We're good at adapting to new circumstances. We're also pretty good at revenge.
