Not yet rated | write a review
Major Jimjoy Earle Wright, secret agent of the Empire, is intelligent and highly trained. But he succeeds all too well in overthrowing a military dictatorship--and the result is a new government inimical to the Empire and disgrace for Jimjoy. After surviving two assassination attempts, Jimjoy realizes that it''s his own imperial superiors who want him dead; that, in fact, his worst enemies could become his best friends. He fights his way to safety on the planet Accord, where the Ecolitan Institute wins his loyalty and changes his identity. Now he is James Joyson Whaler, Ecolitan, in the middle of a war of independence against the inconceivably superior forces of the Empire.

Read from the Book

I     The man in the power technician''s white jumpsuit scanned the control board with the same bored ease and critical eye that the real technician would have used. His forearms rested lightly on the angled and flat gray padding at the base of the control board as his eyes continued their scan. Technically, the failsafe systems were supposed to catch any imbalances long before they showed on the main board, but the destruction of the Newton quarter on Einstein had not been forgotten over the three centuries since it had occurred. There, the failsafes had not functioned, and the duty technician had gone with the plant when the magfield had contracted a magnitude more than the plant had ever been designed to handle. The man who had replaced the duty technician smiled a bored smile as he waited for the failure he knew would come. His eyes flicked to the time readout in the center of the board. 2146--two standard minutes until the magfield began a series of pulses so minute that they would not be perceived for another twenty minutes outside of central control. More important, it was 2146 on Landing Eve, forty-six minutes after the Grand Commandant had arrived at the Military Pavilion to begin the celebration.

Editorial Reviews

"L.E. Modesitt, Jr., is a writer deeply concerned for the impact of humanity on the world. This concern shows clearly in fantasies such as The Order War and science fiction such as The Ecologic Envoy." --Analog

"Revel in the delights of another L.E. Modesitt science fiction adventure, The Ecolitan Empire (4 1/2 stars out of 5)....Modesitt provides the very best in science fiction--thrilling adventure viewed through the crucible of the human spirit." --Romantic Times
