Overview

Here is a powerful first novel, at once disturbing and compelling--the chronicle of one man's odyssey of self-discovery within a world at war. ON MY WAY TO PARADISE.

In a world of ever-worsening crisis, Angelo Osic is an anomaly: a man who cares about others. One day he aids a stranger. . .and calls down disaster, for the woman called Tamara is also a woman on the run, the only human with the knowledge that will save Earth from the artificial intelligences plotting to overthrow it.

Fleeing the assassins who seek him as well as Tamara, Angelo seizes the only escape route available: to sign on as a mercenary with the Japanese Motoki Corporation in its genocidal war against the barbarian Yabajin. Jacked into training machines that simulate warfare, Angelo “dies” a hundred times. . .and is resurrected to fight again. In a world of death, he dreams only of life—and the freedom to love once more.

Editorial Reviews

Orson Scott Card
I hesitate to tell you that this is Dave Wolverton’s first novel. The book is so mature in its sensibility and so strong in its artistry, so deep in its invention that most of us who write fiction would be proud to have such a novel as the culmination, not the beginning, of our career. Many fine words that have won Hugos and Nebulas pale beside this book.

    I won't say how old I was when I first read this book, but after

    I won't say how old I was when I first read this book, but after almost 20 years, it has still left an impression on me. It has been a rediculously hard book to find in print, so I am very glad that it has been made available on the nook. If you are a fan of sci-fi, action, drama, mind games, or deep character developement, this book has something for everyone. A great read and an amazing feat considering it was Wolverton's first book.

    If you loved the battle training in Ender's Game but thought it could use a little more blood and violence then you will love this book! READ THIS BOOK!
