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 among people who can regenerate injured flesh... and trade extra body parts to the Offworld oppressors for iron. For, on a planet without hard metals -- or the means of escape -- iron is power in the race to build a spacecraft.
Iron is the promise of freedom -- which 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... a quest that may finally break the vicious chain of rivalry and bloodshed that enslaves the people of Treason as the Offworld never could.

  • Fantastic Sci-Fi/Fantasy

    By Davebytheriver
    Loved it the whole way through! Written in Card's signature style: page-turning epic doling out equal parts action, mystery, and moral dilemma.
  • Crazy awesome imagination!

    By Onbu
    OSC's imagination really shines through in this book. It's packed with so many ideas that OSC could probably create dozens of other books based on each one. As packed as it is, it doesn't suffer from clutter or confusion. The world he creates weaves in and out of each idea beautifully, sewing together several themes.
  • I LOVED treason.

    Got it after a few other Card novels, great tale of a man exploring his identity, duty, an the history of his planet.
