THE SEAFORT SAGA
A guilt-ridden politician, an earnest young boy, a sick old man eking out a living in the broken streets -- can they alone stop humanity from destroying itself in urban Armageddon?
In a divided world, wealthy citizens look down from skytop aeries to crumbling streets where the urban poor grow ever more desperate.
As war brews, brilliant young Philip Seafort -- only son of the tormented hero Nicholas Seafort -- plunges into the bowels of the city to find his lost friend. Humanity is about to destroy itself. Children are in the line of fire. And a father with an iron will is at Ground Zero...

David Feintuch (1944-2006) was the author of the award-winning military science fiction Seafort Saga series, which spans "Midshipman's Hope, Challenger's Hope, Prisoner's Hope, Fisherman's Hope, Voices of Hope, Patriarch's Hope, "and "Children of Hope". Feintuch came to writing late, previously having worked as a lawyer and antiques dealer. In 1996, at the age of fifty, he won the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer from the World Science Fiction Society. He later expanded into the fantasy genre with his Rodrigo of Caledon series, including "The Still" and "The King".From Booklist:
The fifth volume in the saga of Nicholas Seafort is the best by a wide margin. Retired from both the navy and politics, Nicholas is now the father of 12-year-old Philip. When the boy's friend, Jared Tenere, runs away into the "trannie" part (a gang-ruled slum) of New York, Philip follows him on a one-boy rescue mission that precipitates a full-scale effort by the United Nations' more corrupt politicians to wipe out the trannies. Nicholas prevents this scheme only at the risk of his life in a superb cliffhanger ending. The series' hero is more interesting than ever before, largely because of being regarded from several different viewpoints. It definitely helps, too, that this is the finest action tale in the series to date and that trannie society (complete with its own, exceedingly well-conceived dialect, in which nearly half the book is written) is a notable creative achievement.
