Victory Jet Book Summary: In the 24th century humanity is experiencing a long earned time of renewal after centuries of hardship. From the ashes of the old world a shimmering Megalopolis has risen to dominate the landscape of a newly reformed America.

She dies in an illusion of glorious triumph — a victory which transcends all suffering and all joy.
