To Beth Meacham

Back in '83 you believed in my version of
King Horn.
You still believe. And help. And bear with me
in spite of all the woes.
Editor? Yes, one of the best.
Friend? You do it from the heart.
This book is, in so many ways, for you.
This is a dangerous planet.
May contain spoilers
It had become delicious to him.

Bestselling writer Orson Scott Card returns to the near-future world created for Empire - a world where the international power of the United States has grown too fast, and the fault lines at home have been stressed to the breaking point.

When the American dream shatters into violence, who can hold the people and the government together?

Now a new threat has appeared in Africa - one that President Torrent has been waiting for. A deadly virus is running like wildfire, killing nearly everyone who contracts it. Torrent's plan is to consolidate America's new imperial power by taking control of the chaos and finding an American cure. And, incidentally, to remove some troublesome former allies from the playing board. For good.

"Card folds his compassionate views on politics and the human condition into compelling storytelling and believable characters, and this results in a fast-paced, well-crafted SF thiller - the secret to Card's bestselling Empire." - Library Journal

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.

See my goodreads icon goodreads page. I almost never do reviews, but I use this site to catalogue books.
See my librarything icon librarything page. I use this site to catalogue books and it has more details on books than goodreads does.
