Shadow of the Hegemon
by Orson Scott Card
Okay - I am now *caught* up, and I can crack the newest "final" chapter in this series (till he starts it again).
Phenomenal stuff - I am always impressed by the depth of these stories.
"What's it about?" someone might ask.
War. Love. Birth. Death. Geopolitics. God. Faith.
You know, typical escapist stuff. Not.
