After a five-year sabbatical following the tragic death of his wife and fellow agent, Alysha, Keona Rause returns to the distant colony world of Magenta to resume service with the Magentan Intelligence Service. With him he brings an artificial re-creation of his wife´s personality, a simulacrum built from every digital trace she left behind.

Cashing in old favours, Keona uses his return to the service to take on a series of cases that allow him and the artificial Alysha to piece together his wife´s last days. His investigations lead him inexorably along the same paths Alysha followed five years earlier, to a sinister and deadly group with an unhealthy fascination with the unknowable alien Masters. But as the wider world of Magenta is threatened with an imminent crisis, Keona finds himself in a dilemma: do his duty and stand with his team to expose a villainous crime, or sacrifice them all for the truth about his wife?

People always say that I didn´t give up my seat because I was tired, but that isn´t true. I was not tired physically, or no more tired than I usually was at the end of a working day. I was not old, although some people have an image of me as being old then. I was 42. No, the only tired I was, was tired of giving in. (Rosa Parks)In Charles River Editors’ History for Kids series, your children can learn about history´s most important people and events in an easy, entertaining, and educational way.

All of that is largely unfair, considering the fact that Rosa Parks suffered further abuse and stigma living in the South during the Civil Rights Movement. Forced to move to the North, Rosa continued to work hard for most of the rest of her life. And instead of cashing in on her 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tracey Norman.
