The danui, a reclusive arachnid species, have avoided contact with the Coyote Federation until now. Initiating trade negotiations, they offer only information: the coordinates for an unoccupied world suitable for human life a massive sphere composed of billions of hexagons.
But when the Federation's recon mission goes terribly wrong, the humans realize how little they know about their new partners
