    Society science fiction

    If you like science fiction books with a well-designed society, you'll love this book. It's good vs. bad society. Be sure to get book 2 for the finale.

    Flat story

    S. Lawhead is a good writer and I will probably read his books again. I gave this 3 stars because of the writing but found this story pretty flat with not nearly enough excitement. I read the reviews thats why I got the book. I am almost to the end and I amstill bored. I love scifi but would recomend another title from Lawhead.

    Still Love It!

    First read this in the late 80's and have re-read it 3 or 4 times since. One of my all time favorite books. Sort of a cross between Stargate and Dune.

    Very out of character for Lawhead! But enthralling

    This book is so different for Lawhead, but he definitely pulled it off! I hate books I can<BR/>figure out before they end. I never figured this one out. It made me think about all<BR/>kinds of cultural differences that we abide by without even realizing why we do it. I finished it in a week and I could've read it in a weekend given the chance.

    Best sci-fi book I've ever read

    The search for Fierra and the siege of Dome wich form the book Empyrion are the best scí-fi books I've ever read. Not only is the story and the plot exelent, it's also one of those books that you just can't put down and have to keep on reading, also when I finish the book (I've read it three times allready) I feel like reading it again right after the last page. It's a great book and certainly worth buying.

    Search for Fierra (Empyrion Saga Series #1)

    This is a really good surprise. The action really picks up when the group arrives at Fierra and I could not put it down until the end. I rushed out to get the second book and was not disappointed. The 'good guys' are believeable, with weaknesses and strengths, good and bad, and the 'bad guys' are great deceivers. Better than the Pendragon series.

    Search for Fierra (Empyrion Saga Series #1)

    The book begins as a science fiction/space story but has a unique twist that will hold you until you finish it, if you can get past the trite beginning. Read the second volume about the Dome and you will get even more from the story. The bad guys and the good guys are believable and show human strengths and weaknesses, yet the good do rise above as the good guys should.

    You want to understand faith, read this.

    I have read these 2 books 3x's since 2000. The dynamics of this story sucks-you-in to a world of faith, communism and freedom. Wonderful read.

    It's not as good as other Stephen Lawhead bookS I've read.

    This book was coll and creative, it's different from all his other books. [ besides the siege of Dome ] Even though I read it very fast compared to the rest of his books [ spacificaly the Song of Albion books ] this was a disapointment.
