Description

After centuries of stasis, the island kingdom of Charis began to defy the Church of God Awaiting. Now, after Charis' declaration of independence, the Republic of Siddermark is sliding into chaos. Vicar Clyntahn of the Church of God Awaiting has engineered a rebellion against the Lord Protector - bringing civil war at harvest time. King Cayleb of Charis, his queen Sharleyan, and Merlin Athrawes must stave off wholesale starvation in Siddermark while at the same time shipping in enough land combat units to fend off the "volunteers" from the Church's Temple Lands. And while Vicar Clyntahn is hailed in the Church for his boldness, some remember how dependent Church power is on money from Siddermark...and who wonder what will happen if Siddermark starves.

Review quote

"Superb!" --Booklist, starred review, on By Schism Rent Asunder

"A brillant new saga... Its focus remains on the people who embody the strengths and weaknesses of a flawed but ever hopeful humanity. Highly recommended" --Library Journal, starred review, on By Schism Rent Asunder

"Like its predecessors in the Safehold series, the novel paints a vast, stunningly complex political and military tapestry, with wonderful battle scenes." --Kirkus Reviews on By Heresies Distressed

"Gripping...Shifting effortlessly between battles among warp-speed starships and among oar-powered galleys, Weber brings the political maneuvering, past and future technologies, and vigorous protagonists together for a cohesive, engrossing whole." --Publishers Weekly, starred review, on Off Armageddon Reef

"Vast, complex, intricate, subtle, and unlaydownable. This looks like the start of the biggest thing in science fiction since Isaac Asimov's Foundation series." --Dave Duncan on Off Armageddon Reef

"Effortlessly exceeds the magnificence of its predecessor...I cannot emphasize how much I want to read the next chapter in the Safehold saga." --Fantasy Book Critic on By Schism Rent Asunder

"Fantastic in every sense of the word-the kind of book that makes you sit back and think about this reality that we call life. Who can ask for more than that?" --R. A. Salvatore on Off Armageddon Reef
