Published: Ace Books - September 6th, 2016

Centuries ago, aliens came down and kicked our asses back to the stone age, or damn near. They did it with thelemity ... a weapon which might as well have been magic. Then things got interesting when a few humans discovered they could use this power as well. Now, half a millennia later and we're still at it. The Forever War. Those able to wield thelemity either fight the good fight or they're thrown to the wolves. Humanity is extremely divided and our world is the very definition of “post-apocalyptic.” It's Ender's Game X The Hunger Games X Red Rising and as awesome as a Peter Hamilton novel. Many points of view and loads of world-building (and world-shattering) make this one a little slow to start, but once the ball gets rolling it really rolls. Don't miss this one. – Guest Reviewer Patrick Heffernan
