The novel is set to explore the beginnings of the Forerunner-Flood War.
It details Forerunner-Human contact within the "first dozen pages."

It is also revealed in the first chapter that Humanity once had a previous
interstellar empire. This original empire ended some 10,000 years before
the events of the book, when they went to war with the Forerunners and were
utterly defeated. As punishment, the surviving Humans were devolved by the
Forerunners and exiled back to their planet of origin, a world called "Erde-
Tyrene" (known in the present as Earth) in the Sol system. The Human species
was also split into about a half dozen sub-species to reduce the chances of
it once again allying and becoming strong.

The story opens on a Human steam boat on Earth (then known simply as Erde-
Tyrene) sailing over a sea of kraken-like monsters which must be sung
a lulling song to keep the creatures from attacking. On board are two members
of a human subspecies; one is a chamanune known as Chakas, and another called
a hamanune (also called a florian) known as Riser, respectively, and the young
Forerunner Manipular known as Born Stellar Makes Eternal Lasting, preferring
to be called simply Born, as his mother did. The hamanune approaches Born and
instructs him to remove his forerunner combat skin as it is upsetting the song.
Born then decides to consult with his armor's ancilla first. The ancilla is
shown as a disemodied intelligence (similar role to another famous A.I) and
explains that electrical and magnetic fields, other then the ones caused by
the planet's dynamics, throws the krakens into a frenzy as is why the boat is
powered by a primitive steam engine. She then continues to assure him that the
armor will be of no value to the human crew. With that, Born begins to remove
his armor as the florian fetches him sandals made of reeds.
