13 Dec Map of the Constancy
Another Book 2 sneak preview. Roughly the size of the Milky Way, the Constancy occupies the edge of super-galaxy Externis, and consists of roughly 1 million sentient systems under the protection of the alliance known as the Ascendancy. Founded by the Interians, the Lesser (or “proper”) Ascendancy includes the Interian system, six military systems known as the Aegis, and allied systems. The Greater Ascendancy — often used interchangeably with the Constancy, although the latter is a geographical designation — includes the Lesser Ascendancy and the Independent Worlds of the Constancy.
