It's always a special treat when this bestselling fantasy writer turns his hand to SF, and Archform: Beauty is no exception. Five people tell their stories and the many parts become one story of justice and truth in a world beset by technological challenges, drowning in apathy, and attacked by devious evil. Four centuries in the future, nanomachines watch the health of the wealthy and manufacture food and gadgets for everybody, but social problems persist. The stories of five disparate characters overlap, interchange, combine, and build into a tour de force of storytelling.
L. E. Modesitt, Jr. asks difficult questions, sets himself unlikely challenges and, once again, delivers an absorbing tale that enlightens, entertains, and uplifts.
The new SF novel from the bestselling author of the Saga of Recluce.
