Book Cover
The American Empire has grown too fast, and the fault lines at home are stressed to the breaking point. The war of words between Right and Left has collapsed into a shooting war, though most people just want to be left alone.

The battle rages between the high-technology weapons on one side, and militia foot-soldiers on the other, devastating the cities, and overrunning the countryside. But the vast majority, who only want the killing to stop, and the nation to return to more peaceful days, have technology, weapons and strategic geniuses of their own.

When the American dream shatters into violence, who can hold the people and the government together? And which side will you be on?

[A] relentless thriller, which couldn't be timelier."

Book Cover
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
