The Gaia-Domestechnology-rich, oppressive and fanaticalare collapsing. Contending religions and sects roil the planet. Semiliterate primitives, decimated by environmental catastrophe, struggle to comprehend their obscure roots and uncertain prospects. A brilliant youth, groomed for the task from childhood, is sent by the New Rebels on a 12-year odyssey to uncover archives that will enable him to construct a new alphabet and write the Foundation Document for a postlapsarian world. But can he successfully complete the mission without losing his faith, his principles,or his life? Drawing on what Joseph Campbell called the monomyth narrative, Embers of the Earth chronicles a future where ecology is destiny, revolutionaries are venerated as goddesses, family secrets have global repercussions, and the reluctant hero is a teller of tales who sparks an underground cultural revival by refusing to tell lies about humankind's past.show more

Banks' "Excession," and "The Algebraist," you'll love Robert Balmanno's "Embers of the Earth." -- Becky Breitweiser "Private Correspondence with the Publisher"show more
