In 2014's The Accidental Superpower, geopolitical strategist Peter Zeihan made the case that geographic, demographic, and energy trends were unravelling the global system. Zeihan takes the story a step further in The Absent Superpower, mapping out the threats and opportunities as the world descends into disorder.

I watched several of his talks on YouTube, but this book goes further in depth on what is in store. The overall depth is amazing, but heavy on numbers and spatial thinking required means don’t listen while driving in heavy traffic. I also suggest the book, so you can see all graphs.

I cannot wait for November 2019 for his next book.

On a world brought to the brink of destruction, life now clings to the shattered remains of the planet's crust. These fragments are the Shells: fragile wastelands of desert and rock, protected from the cold of space by a water shield. In the struggle for survival, its people have depended on ancient technology, controlled by the omnipresent Network, to sustain the entire population. But the Network is breaking down, water is sparse, and a complete societal collapse is imminent.

This is just the first book, the second is called Fall. It has not been published yet.

The story telling is amazing a scribe is gathering the viewpoints of two individuals and trying to tell a narrative of events that will save society. The end of the story is a cliffhanger for the second book. The included appendix of the first interview with Quentin shows how crazy he really is.

Please support this author, this is Brian Guthrie's first book, to bring out more amazing books that continue this story. You will enjoy the ride.

In a direct follow-up to the third book in the Sundering series, The Adversary, young warlock Farideh falls into the midst of a battle for the throne of Cormyr. As the war brought on by the Sundering rages across Faern, princes and princesses, wizards and rogues scheme to capture the seat of power of the Land of the Purple Dragon - with Farideh and her allies caught squarely in the middle.

Farideh continues to move to the beat of her own drum in Cormyr despite the influences of the many nobles that take careful stock of her abilities. Lots of great interaction with Dahl that truly becomes better as the story moves along, even better Tiamat shows up in an unexpected way.
