From the Author

Stephen R. Lawhead is an internationally acclaimed author of fantasy and imaginative fiction. He is the author of many book, including, the Byzantium and the Pendragon Cycle series. He lives in Oxford, England, with his wife and sons

From the Back Cover

How resilient is the human spirit in the face of merciless oppression? What values in life stand up to certain death?

In the second and concluding Empyrion book, Orion Treet determines to return to Dome after his brief respite among the peaceable, graceful Fieri. No one but Orion and a handful of rebels seriously believes that Dome will carry out its threat to annihilate Fierra. Abandoned by his companions from Earth, Treet becomes a solitary figure in a deadly civil war. The Empyrion novels are among Lawhead’s most captivating accomplishments of storytelling and adventure; among the best there is in science fiction. Look for the award-winning Empyrion I: The Search for Fierra, at your local bookstore.

Stephen Lawhead has always been a favorite author of mine, so I was please when I heard that he had some science fiction novels out as well. I was even more pleased when I had the chance to read the first in the search for Fierra series, called siege of dome. The characters were realistic and easy to relate to. The imaginary battle between those in the dome and those of the outside world was well told and properly addressed. Stephen Lawheads explanation of the wormhole theory was especially interesting. If you like Science fiction that's a cut above the rest, read this book.

Lawhead achieves an all-too-rare accomplishment in fiction...a sequel that's as good as the original.
The Siege of Dome picks up right where '..Fierra' left off. Our hero, having found the legendary Fierrans, is compelled to save them from the evils of Dome. Fascinating adventure.
It's categorized as sci-fi, but I'm more willing to call it fantasy. The characters are transported to an unknown land...where, in true fantasy form, they encounter all sorts of unknown dangers.

Format: Paperback
This is book 2 of 2 in the Empyrion series, a delightful "classic" sci-fi adventure for teens and adults (not for children). This volume picks up exactly where book 1 ended. While book 1 was focused very much on adventure, this book fleshes out the characters more: Yarden pursues training as an artist among the Fieri, and Pizzle pursues a girl while they all travel to the Bay of Talking Fish for a special event. Meanwhile, Treet endures capture and torture in Dome and is once again rescued by rebels who aided him before. A civil war begins in Dome as the new Supreme Director seeks to destroy any who threaten his power.

While Lawhead does write for a Christian audience, there is no presentation of the Gospel in either of these books. Yes, there is an "Infinite Father" who promotes peace and a personal relationship, but that's about all you'll find.... more of a simple good vs evil approach. I have loved this Empyrion series for nearly 20 years now, and I re-read them every few years.

I have this book in print, but it's been re-read enough times it is falling apart. So I was thrilled that it was offered for Kindle on sale. Except... the only reason I could read this book was that I had read it in print so much. I can usually read right past typos, but this was extreme. It looked like Amazon put Lawhead's hand-written copy through character recognition software. Which would be fine if they at least ran it through a spell check and grammar check afterwords. That would have caught all the many words with numbers inserted instead of letters, the words missing letters, and the words run together. Then there were the stray apostrophe marks everywhere. But even that I might get past, except that the punctuation made the middle of the story virtually unreadable. I literally would not have understood much of the story if I did not know it so well. Even so, I still had to reread and reread and reread certain passages until I could figure out where the punctuation was supposed to be. Run-on sentences and sentence fragments were rampant, and I know that is not how the print version was published. Amazon will be hearing from me regarding fixing this or refunding my money. I am only glad I hadn't recycled the print book yet.

This book was a bit dated, as it seemed to allude to a Cold War world, but the principles here could just as easily apply to modern day political situations in North Korea and Iran. Stephen Lawhead always writes good stuff. It kept me interested until the end, and it made me think about bigger things. Thanks again to the author for another good offering.

I liked every word used in this series. If a 73 year old reader of syfy and fantasy loved the story, everyone should. It is a wonderful escape.

What a great way to end the two book series. I couldn't put it down. Lawson pulls you farther and farther into the story as the struggle to free Dome Takes place. I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves sci-fi. There are some references of religion and mentions of God (the Infinite) but nothing overtly Christian. I found that it was wholesome entertainment, which seems pretty hard to find these days.

As another reviewer pointed out, it was so refreshing to read a bona fide science fiction story that wasn't one long sexual romp or constant warfare. There was plenty of suspense and action and an excellent story line. It also took this second volume to complete the tale. I also appreciated Mr. Lawhead using Christian philosophy to frame his characters and events. In fact most anyone with a belief in God can follow the thinking and identify with the characters. I highly recommend this book.
