Product Description

Product Description

When whole planets are the colonies that make up an empire, can nations exist? Can you be loyal to a ruler who you have never seen, and likely will never see?

Should a planet fight its own wars? Is intervention in local uprisings ever justified?

-

It is far in the future. From a remote, anonymous Homeworld, a reclusive Empress is losing her empire gradually as planets and artificial colonies declare independence. The sheer scale of space makes any kind of reaction inevitably too slow.

When a small civil war breaks out on an isolated, backward world, two great powers rush to capitalise on the chaos; the Empire, trying to hold on to anything it can, and the AHU, a loose coalition of self-proclaimed free worlds prepared to intervene in any uprising against the Homeworld. The law says any colony which cannot promptly and efficiently deal with independence movements will face Absolute Liberation - occupation by Her Majesty's elite force, the CSF, and martial law until dissident elements are wiped out.

Ronah Dubanet is a baker's son who thinks he knows what's he's fighting for - his home and his planet. Who he should be fighting for is Her Majesty.

-

Absolute Liberation is a novel about the difficulties of maintaining your identity in an age of interplanetary superpowers, about fighting someone else's war light-years from home for the sake of people who don't even want you there. It's about the dispassionate, mechanised wars of the future, when faceless machines and unmanned drones rule and the men on the ground can only hope to survive.

But above all that, it is a novel about honesty - and the lengths to which one man is prepared to go to protect his own interests and stand up for his family.
