A Dirge for Sabis (The Sword of Knowledge #1) - C. J. Cherryh, Leslie Fish

Can Sabis be saved?

Ancaran hordes swarm her Northern borders... Her armies are flung back broken upon her walls... Those with the wealth to do so flee daily to the lands beyond the Sea...

Born out of brute force, the Sabirn Empire falls now to an even greater force, a force that only a weapon born half a millenium before its time could withstand. The Sabirn have such a super weapon – but what if the rulers are too short-sighted to recognize it, or too tight-fisted to pay the price? Then truly it will be time for – A Dirge for Sabis.
