Publisher's Summary

The second book of Terra Ignota, a political SF epic of extraordinary audacity

In a future of near-instantaneous global travel, of abundant provision for the needs of all, a future in which no one living can remember an actual war, a long era of stability threatens to come to an abrupt end.

For known only to a few, the leaders of the great Hives, nations without fixed location, have long conspired to keep the world stable, at the cost of just a little blood. A few secret murders, mathematically planned. So that no faction can ever dominate, and the balance holds. And yet the balance is beginning to give way.

Mycroft Canner, convict, sentenced to wander the globe in service to all, knows more about this conspiracy the than he can ever admit. Carlyle Foster, counselor, sensayer, has secrets as well, and they burden Carlyle beyond description. And both Mycroft and Carlyle are privy to the greatest secret of all: Bridger, the child who can bring inanimate objects to life.

Shot through with astonishing invention, Seven Surrenders is the next movement in one of the great SF epics of our time.

    "Excellent!"

    Surpassed the 1st book. Makes me want to read Voltaire/Diderot/etc! I was sad about the new reader but he grew on me.

    "Fantastic Book"
    What did you love best about Seven Surrenders?

    The characters, the intelligent asides, the plot was extremely interesting, the mystery elements kept me turning pages, and the overall writing was fantastic.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Seven Surrenders?

    It would give too much away


    Which character – as performed by T. Ryder Smith – was your favorite?

    Mycroft


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Again, it would give too much away - but I can say that I keep a distance between myself and the world, and myself and any book. It's hard to move me, but there were several scenes in this book that stirred something in me to a greater degree than any book I can remember reading or listening to in a long time.


    Any additional comments?

    Truly, I loved this book. Too Like the Lightening was my favorite book of 2016, and Seven Surrenders just may be my favorite book of 2017.
