The capsuleers are the immortal pilots that string together the vast Interglactic empire that makes up the universe of EVE. Remote from the mortal population they have come from they are cold and distant. They are needed but hated. Drem has reason to hate them - a capsuleer attack on the pirate space colony he worked in killed his family. Ralea hates them too. But her hatred is for herself as well. She worked as an agent for capsuleers acquiring missions for capsuleer agents and taking a cut from the profits. Missions that lead to countless people dying. Drem seeks revenge, Ralea, redemption. The key to their futures lies with the sisters of Eve, a philanthropic rescue organisation who span the known worlds. But how do you revenge yourself against an immortal? Where can you find redemption if you have killed thousands? Drem and Ralea will find that their quests are intertwined and that they will lead to an unexpected place. EVE: THE BURNING LIFE is a fast moving space opera: a tale of revenge and redemption that spans the Universe.
