McMillan Palgrave
In this sequel to Empire, Cole seeks proof of how Averell Torrent orchestrated a presidential assassination and a perilous political takeover.

In this sequel to Card’s bestselling novel Empire, Averell Torrent has become President of the United States, with enormous political and popular support and, if people only realized it, a tight grip on the reins of both political parties. He has launched America into a get-tough, this-world-is-our-empire foreign policy stance.

But Captain Bartholomew Coleman, known as Cole to his friends and enemies alike, sees the danger Torrent poses to American democracy and the potential disasters involved in his foreign military adventures. Cole quickly runs afoul of Torrent; on the run, he and a few friends and allies seek proof of how Torrent orchestrated the political takeover that included assassinating a President and nearly starting a civil war.

As is the case in many of Card's works, some of the youngest characters in this story captivated me, and in my opinion they stole the show. In the midst of a world gone hideously wrong, two boys from completely different backgrounds choose to take terrible risks helping the victims of an epidemic. Their character arcs, woven throughout the bigger picture, made for some of the most powerful fiction I've ever read. Just don't enter this story expecting a light, happy read. Card respects children too much to give them an artificially easy time, especially when they take such a courageous stand.

I've heard recent rumors about Card loosing it. I'm not surprised by GeahkBurchill's review.

This book was appalling. I have always thought of OSC as being a pretty reasonable and even-handed writer but this one smacks of bent intentions and even madness. A poorly plotted book with a heavy-handed political message that tries to alter reality to suite the writer's fanatical ideology. This is Card attempting to become Ayn Rand and failing.
