"Orson Scott Card at his best."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Treason tells the story of Lanik Mueller who his exiled from his homeland at the hand of his own father, because he is a radical regenerative. He suffers from a deforming medical condition that results in him sprouting new body parts. He is sent on a mission to a far away land, and spared the usualy fate of radical regeneratives – having their spare body parts harvested and traded for hard metals. On his journeys Lanik discovers many different societies and learns of the remarkable talents they have developed, but not all want to use their talents for good. This thought provoking book is Orson Scott Card at his best.

Description

Lanik Mueller's birthright as heir to planet Treason's most powerful ruler ship will never be realised. He is a "rad" - a radical regenerative, a freak who can regenerate injured flesh...and trade extra body parts to the Offworld oppressors for iron. On a planet without hard metals - or the means of escape - iron is power in the race to build a spacecraft. Iron is the promise of freedom - which may never be fulfilled as Lanik uncovers a treacherous conspiracy beyond his imagination. Now charged with a mission of conquest - and exile - Lanik devises a bold and dangerous plan...a quest that may finally break the vicious chain of rivalry and bloodshed that enslaves the people of Treason as the Offworld never could.
