The Will to Battle—the third book of 2017
John W. Campbell Award winner Ada Palmer's Terra Ignota
series—a political science fiction epic of
The long years of near-utopia have come to an abrupt end.
Peace and order are now figments of the past. Corruption,
deception, and insurgency hum within the once steadfast
leadership of the Hives, nations without fixed location.
The heartbreaking truth is that for decades, even centuries,
the leaders of the great Hives bought the world’s stability
with a trickle of secret murders, mathematically planned. So
that no faction could ever dominate. So that the balance held.
The Hives’ façade of solidity is the only hope they have for
maintaining a semblance of order, for preventing the public
from succumbing to the savagery and bloodlust of wars past.
But as the great secret becomes more and more widely known,
that façade is slipping away.
Just days earlier, the world was a pinnacle of human
civilization. Now everyone—Hives and hiveless, Utopians and
sensayers, emperors and the downtrodden, warriors and
saints—scrambles to prepare for the seemingly inevitable war.
