Summary
Well over a millennium in the past, men and women fled Earth. Escaping Armageddon. What they found--lost in some forgotten corner of the Milky Way Galaxy--was the Waywork: an alien superhighway system between a closed sphere of stars. Now, the five Starstates--which rule all that's left of humanity--are poised on the brink of another terrible war. And three unlikely people--the daring daughter of a royal family, the reluctant son of an interstellar shipping magnate, and a disgraced flag officer seeking redemption--must come together to race against the forces of their greatest foe. Because the Waywork may at last be ready to give up its secrets, and one woman--a merciless autocrat, from the Waywork's most brutal regime--is determined to ensure that she controls it all. It's a clash of civilizations, as the future of the human race hangs in the balance! About Chaplain's War Torgersen mixes the spiritual aspects of the book with subtlety, integrating questions about God and faith into the story organically. The result is thought provoking questions arising as part of an entertaining story . . . Torgersen [also] doesn't shy away from conflict, violence, or space battles. --Futures Past and Present Solid hard SF with the frisson of well thought through action. Much to enjoy! --Gregory Benford, multiple Nebula award-winning creator of the Galactic Center saga About Brad Torgersen: Brad Torgersen can write something technical and complex, yet still give it real emotional depth. He's one of the most talented authors I've ever read. --Larry Correia Brad R. Torgersen shows why he's going to be a power in this field for years to come. --Mike Resnick Brad Torgersen is a writer who's done a lot and come up the hard way... and the depth of his writing shows it, especially in understanding the nuts and bolts of technology and the souls of those who use it. --L.E. Modesitt, Jr
