An astronaut in exile, Saul Blackwell has discovered the key to eternal life—a salve—while living amongst a primitive people who worship him as a god. In order to refine this life-extending substance and purge it of its negative side-effects, Saul requires the high-tech lab facilities of the New Athens base—the very place from which he is in exile. First, however, Saul must lead his followers, the Kishna, in a desperate battle against a deadly enemy and hope against hope that he survives. Meanwhile expedition leader Kenji Yashioto must deal with a personal loss, a plague of equipment failures, and a pregnant wife. When a new menace arises to threaten all mankind, Kenji and his crew may be called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice. The Children of Sol Book Three: Golgotha, is the final installment of the Children of Sol trilogy.
