Treason - Orson Scott Card

A revised and expanded version of A Planet Called Treason (1979).

Lanik Mueller's birthright as heir to planet Treason's most powerful rulership will never be realized. He is a "rad" – radical regenerative. A freak among people who can regenerate injured flesh... and trade extra body parts to the Offworld oppressors for iron. For, on a planet without hard metals – or the means of escape – iron is power in the race to build a spacecraft.

Iron is the promise of freedom – which may never be fulfilled as Lanik uncovers a treacherous conspiracy beyond his imagination.

Now charged with a mission of conquest – and exile – Lanik devises a bold and dangerous plan... a quest that may finally break the vicious chain of rivalry and bloodshed that enslaves the people of Treason as the Offworld never could.
