Blood will water the corn....
It's been a year since the Saranyu flotilla fell from the sky, and life in the Heartland has changed. Gone are the Obligations and the Harvest Home festivals. In their place is a spate of dead towns, the former inhabitants forced into mechanical bodies to serve the Empyrean - and crush the Heartland.
When Cael awakens from a Blightborn sleep, miles away from the world he remembers, he sets out across the Heartland to gather his friends for one last mission. As the mechanicals, a war flotilla, and a pack of feral Empyrean girls begin to close in on the Heartland, there isn't much time to make their next move. But if they can uncover a secret weapon in time, Cael and his friends might just find themselves with the power to save the world - or destroy it - resting in their hands.

Wow... the author and reader both... Just wow! The depth of the characters, the wit of the metaphors, the character voices... I read a bunch, not as many as some, but a bunch nonetheless. I have lots of favorites, and I would have never considered Wendig among them. He did great work with this series, and I really enjoyed it. I'm sure you will too.
