The Timestream is at least six known versions of Planet Earth arranged in hexagonal fashion. Each has different histories and societies, some different geologies, but all share the same physical laws and chronology. At critical historical points on one of the planets, crucial decisions result in two Earths with the same prior history but differing subsequent ones. Major events on neighbouring planets in the Timestream affect each other strongly...
Samadeya-Qayin and Pelik-Qayin--the alternate continuations of the repentant and unrepentant Cain respectively--continue their perpetual dual.
Amy Rea is the adopted daughter of Samadeya-Qayin, the ally of the Almighty. From Amy's post-Academy appointment as second officer to the Royal Army Naval Corps frigate Boudicca, she's rapidly promoted to commodore, then Vice-Admiral, and finally Admiral of the Orange aboard Victory. Her novel tactics and how she deals with her shipmates become Royal Navy doctrine. Rea cultivates a band of fellow officers who will follow her to hell and back. Many do so for her last battle against enemy nations Spain and France off Trafalgar Point, where she's shot down by snipers in a resolute stand on Victory's quarterdeck. But who is Amy Rae, what is her great secret, and why does she have so many look-alikes?
