|Plot Summary of The Rise of Endymion|
Aenea and Raul, still chased by the Pax/new Catholic church, who have an unholy alliance with the parasite AI Technocore, race to spread a new message which teaches the new physics of Love - a new way to live. As they cross worlds, hunted by terrible AI constructs, the Pax wars against the Ousters, and all those societies who will not accept the cruciform - a gift from the Technocore which gives near-immortality, and allows the parasite AIs to prey on the human mind. Characters cross time and space as Aenea's gift of her altered DNA allows access to 'the void which binds' and the ability to eavesdrop on the experiences of others, dead and alive. Her goal is to destroy the pax/technocore alliance, and she has seen that she will have to suffer torture and death...
