Les vieux démons de la nature humaine sont aussi de retour et à nouveau les querelles pour le pouvoir font rage. Et la situation ne fait que s’envenimer. Quelqu’un ou quelque chose semble vouloir faire échouer toute tentative d’unification. Les relations entre Enora, la présidente de la Confédération Terrienne, et Atama, l’Empereur Martien sont au plus mal. Et chaque camp est au bord de l’implosion. Les Etats qui constituent Confédération sont très divisés et les alliers du Martien, Zerdan le maître des lunes de Jupiter, et Narcisse, l’empereur autoproclamé des mondes d’Uranus, se détestent cordialement. Le seul endroit où semble encore régner une certaine sérénité, c’est à bord du cargo récolteur Albatros. Mais en acceptant de prendre à bord deux fugitifs pourchassés par Nacisse, l’Amiral Tulk sait que cette tranquillité relative va prendre fin. L’Albatros doit fuir le monde d’Uranus et l’incroyable secret qui se cache dans les profondeurs de son atmosphère pour un long voyage périlleux vers le centre du système solaire.
