Publisher's Summary

Lanik Mueller is a "rad" - radical regenerative - a freak who can regenerate injured flesh...and trade extra body parts to the Offworld oppressors for iron. On a planet without hard metals, or the means of escape, iron offers the promise of freedom through the chance to build a spacecraft.

But it is a promise 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 to finally break the vicious chain of rivalry and bloodshed that enslaves the people of the planet Treason.

    "I harken back"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was a wied yet wonderful journey through the novel and I was very pleased with the narration, it held together strongly and didn't cause any distractions from the fascinating writing of Orson Scott Card. I was told that this would be a kind of strange novel with strange accounts and actions in a world so unbelievable that you can indeed imagine it being real, if that makes sense. Treason is a mystery at its heart and I love a good mystery, it just so happens that this mystery has many twisted layers that do come together well in the end, but do make the trip very tactile. I was very pleased with this book, it has been the first of this master writers works I have ever ventured into - knowing the skills displayed I will no longer be a stranger.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    We drew to the end with quite a bit of skill, it surprised as well as reasured in some way.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narration, as I have stated was well done and did not intrued into the story.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    This would make one very strange movie... I would see it for shock value alone

    "FANTASTIC listen."

    I could not pull my earbuds out...This book was riveting! The concept is very original, and the the performance made every character come to life. You definitely don't have to be a science-fiction fan to enjoy this fantastic story. The prelude from the author is a wonderful addition.

    "This one will stay with you!"

    I have heard OSCard believes this may be his favorite child. He has great taste. Wow is this story weird and terrific! Best for adults/older teens because of the relationship stuff. Narration is perfect. Sound quality clear and beautiful. I'd give it a five star but the story ends! Such a bummer, what was he thinking ? It should keep going and going!

    "Love It!"

    I have always been a big fan of Orson Scott Card's Enderverse so when I had a friend suggest that I give this one a try I did and boy was I glad that I did. This is an exciting story that lives up to to quality of the Ender's Series!

    Hello, I'm Adrian. I'm engaged to Nichole Braddock and love books! Though I don't have much time to sit and read so I listen... But audio books whole new universe! They make old books new and new books classics! I myself get into some moods and don't write the greatest reviews. Forgive me. I like to review books but it just feels too much like work to me :p

    "More of a good thing!"

    Amazing how his books all seem to have one idea. Or maybe one big group of ideas that end up taking many forms throughout all his books. Ender's Game was the first book of his I read, like many others, and ever sense I've somehow found him to be one of my favorite authors. You may read one of his books and hate it. But if you can read many of them then you may change your thoughts of that first book you hated!

    "Treason - don't buy it"

    Main problem is the reader. He's boring - I couldn't make it through the whole book.
