Lanik Mueller’s birthright as heir to planet Treason’s most powerful rulership will never be realized. He is a “rad”—radical regenerative—a freak who can regenerate injured flesh and trade extra body parts to the Offworld oppressors for iron. On a planet without hard metals, or the means of escape, iron offers the promise of freedom through the chance to build a spacecraft. But it is a promise that may never be fulfilled, as Lanik uncovers a treacherous conspiracy beyond his imagination. Now charged with a mission of conquest—and exile—Lanik devises a bold and dangerous plan to break the vicious chain of rivalry and bloodshed that enslaves the people of Treason as the Offworld never could.

This compelling, suspenseful work of science fiction is set in a fantastical world that could only come from the brilliant imagination of Orson Scott Card.

    " Oh, Orson, how far you have fallen. Instead of the brilliance that was Ender's Game, you now write a Tea Partier's political doomsday fantasy/sub-par action movie. A shame. Hopefully you'll recover from this. "

    " This is the first time I will not not be reading the sequel if that tells you anything. I think this is the worst book I have read in a long time. "

    " wow. this was just one of those books I could not put down. Fast-action and very enjoyable. "

    " Intriguing beginning, but falters a quarter of the way through with wooden characters and laughable plot. Devolves into outright silly camp towards the end. A thinly disguised vehicle for Card's politics, unworthy in my view of the author of the excellent "Ender's Game." "

    " Great political thriller. What would happen if the Republicans and Democrats started a civil war..... "

    " Really liked this book. I haven't read many Orson Scott Card books and really enjoyed his writing style. Major twist in the middle that I wasn't expecting and definitely kept me guessing through out. Also made me think a lot about government and and how fragile our society and way of life is. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gollor | 3/9/2011

    " Interesting idea, not the greatest implementation. It was like a caricature of a book to promote how great right wing ideals are. The left wing is the bat shit crazy imperialists trying to take over NY, and the right wingers save the day. Which is ass backwards, if nothing else. "

    " Another book that was hard to put down and had me totally engrossed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 2/28/2011

    " Action! Packed! Plausible? Plausiblish. I felt like I was supposed to learn more than I did. I regretted that I had not skipped the preachy postscript. But there were briefly robots, so I learned what I could from that. "

    " Not bad, but not great. Good plot, but I've never really enjoyed Orson Scott Card and this didn't change my mind "
