Patience might look like she's merely a teenage girl, but in truth, she's an assassin for the King ... and the rightful heir to the throne, if secrets be known. Now, a strange visitor makes his intentions known: to help her usurp the throne and rule over their world as the one true Heptarch. Patience knows her every move is being watched and her life is in jeopardy whatever choice she makes. But she also knows that she is destined to one day encounter a strange creature called "Unwyrm," and that she will ultimately become its mate... or its destroyer! As Patience and a small band of companions travel across the world towards a place called Cranning, they experience an out-of-this-world adventure that reveals the truth behind the origins of humanity on their world... and the true source of the power that the Heptarch wields. Based on the popular novel by New York Times Bestselling author Orson Scott Card (Red Prophet), Wyrms is a science fiction epic with mythological style that is sure to enchant readers with its unique world and premise. Collects Wyrms #1-6.

From the Back Cover:

A New York Times Best Book of the Year

New York Times bestselling author of Ender's Shadow

"One of the most gripping SF adventure novels of recent years."--Science Fiction Chronicle

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: 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. And Patience must journey to the heartsoul of this planet to confront her destiny . . . and her world's.
