The sphere is alien in origin but has been controlled by man for millennia. A legend as old as the stars rules this constructed world: when the seventh seventh seventh human Heptarch is crowned, he will be the Kristos and will bring salvation-or eternal destruction of the cosmos.
Patience is the only daughter of the rightful Heptarch, but she, like her father, serves the usurper who has destroyed her family; for she believes that duty to one's race is more important than duty to one's self. But the time for prudence has passed, and Patience must journey to the heartsoul of the planet with a small band of companions to confront her destiny-and the destiny of her world.
Wyrms is a science fiction epic with mythological style that is sure to enchant listeners with its unique world and premise.

|display_description||The sphere is alien in origin, but has been controlled by Man for millennia. A legend as old as the stars rules this constructed world: when the seventh seventh seventh human Heptarch is crowned, he will be the Kristos and will bring eternal salvation . . . or the destruction of the cosmos. Patience is the only daughter of the rightful Heptarch, but she, like her father before her, serves the usurper who has destroyed her family. For she has learned the true ruler's honor: that duty to one's race is more important than duty to one's self. But the time for prudence has passed, and that which has slept for ages has awakened. Patience must journey to the heartsoul of this planet to confront her destiny . . . and her world's. Wyrms is an Orson Scott Card classic, one of the novels that helped forge his young career.|
