In her fury, Tomi destroyed the Greatship, Hades IV, and almost everyone onboard. Almost everyone. . .William the Black escaped with his life.She now hides out in a remote monastery, awaiting the day when she can kill the three she holds responsible for the death of her samurai: William, Ryogi, and herself. . .With her real body in exile, Tomi’s consciousness inhabits a deteriorating clone body on a satellite around Cerberus. She’s lived and worked incognito in orbit for almost three years now, monitoring the planet’s subspace debris cleanup.But some histories will not stay buried.Tomi again finds herself in the crossfire when Ryogi’s forces ambush the Presidential shuttle in her sector.Ryogi’s samurai have pirated remote control of her satellite’s store of dormant clone bodies; his combat programmers fight her for the station’s computers, while the planet’s extrasphere swarms with deadly smart-mines.

Or will Tomi abandon it all and give in to despair?"Spherical Tomi" is an action-packed tale of deception, revenge, redemption, fragmented identity, and the limitations of the human and artificial mind.
