Orion Treet, an itinerant and often-unemployed writer, is abducted at gunpoint. Then he is offered eight million dollars and the adventure of a lifetime. The mission? To observe and chronicle the growth of a new extraterrestrial colony: Empyrion.
Arriving on the planet Fierra, Treet discovers a civilization in decline, fragmented by millennia of mistrust and hatred. To survive, he and his odd assortment of companions must unscramble the mysteries around them... before time runs out for the settlement.
The Empyrion novels are among Lawhead's most captivating accomplishments of storytelling and adventure – the best there is in science fiction. The Search for Fierra won the Campus Life Editor's Choice Award. Look for Empyrion II: The Siege of Dome, at your local bookstore.
