BUY THE BOOK

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

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.

Orson Scott Card is a master storyteller, who has earned millions of fans and reams of praise for his previous science fiction and fantasy novels. Now he steps a little closer to the present day with this chilling look at a near future scenario of a new American Civil War.

Empire — Battle rages with high-technology weapons versus militia foot-soldiers, 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.

Hidden Empire — A deadly plague devastating the world leads the American President to declare severe immigration restriction. Captain Batholomew Coleman must navigate a hostile population, while protecting researchers, in the hopes of finding a cure.
