Description

Biron Farrell was young and naïve, but he was growing up fast. A
radiation bomb planted in his dorm room changed him from an innocent student at
the University of Earth to a marked man, fleeing desperately from an unknown
assassin.

He soon discovers that, many light-years away, his father, the highly
respected Rancher of Widemos, has been murdered. Stunned, grief-stricken, and
outraged, Biron is determined to uncover the reasons behind his father's death
and becomes entangled in an intricate saga of rebellion, political intrigue,
and espionage.

The mystery takes
him deep into space, where he finds himself in a relentless struggle with the
power-mad despots of Tyrann. Now it is not just a case of life or death for
Biron—it is a question of freedom for the galaxy.

      • bioText: Isaac Asimov began writing his Foundation series at the age of twenty-one, not realizing that it would one day be considered a cornerstone of science fiction. During his legendary career, Asimov penned over 470 books on subjects ranging from science to Shakespeare to history, though he was most loved for his award-winning science fiction sagas, which include the Robot, Empire, and Foundation series. Named "Grand Master of Science Fiction" by the Science Fiction Writers of America, Asimov entertained and educated readers of all ages for close to five decades. He died, at the age of seventy-two, in April 1992.
