This week, CCP Abraxis announced the completion of EVE: The Burning Life, which is now on sale in the UK and is scheduled to release in the US at the end of the month. The novel gives insight into the factions and empires of New Eden, with a particular focus on the pirate factions and how the capsuleer elite have come to dominate the galaxy. In his announcement, Abraxis gives some details on what we can expect to read in the book:
"... in one way it's the story of two people who go through a boatload of hurt, but it's also a story about the empires, and the pirate factions, and how all of us reading this have come to dominate their world. It's almost a travelogue: We get to see Gallentean bodymod conferences, Amarrian convents, Caldari Mind Clash games, and a strange Minmatar exodus. There are the Angels, all marching in step; and Guristas, living their crazy lives. There are the Sansha, in their quiet metal hell. And the Sisters of EVE, trying to save a few souls along the way. ... It's a novel about revenge and redemption, about putting away old things - or settling scores, depending on who you ask"
