Melding fantasy and science fiction, The Archer at the End of Time creates a universe expanding from the apocalyptic end of man's galactic empire to a climax millions of years in the future. Clansman Deron McRey and outcast Kayleen Dei Theene are two of the many people ensnared by a web of a prophecy woven by a messianic religious figure, Peter the Blind, ten thousand years ago. The threads of time are knotted by deadly foes, all aiming for the ultimate and final destruction of mankind. Traversing a land drowning by rising seas and battered by warring sentient machines, humanity struggles to survive while creating a civilization that relies not on technology but mental prowess to once again return to the stars and fulfill its ultimate destiny. Woven with stunning twists and turns, this fast-paced first book sets the stage for incredible events unfolding through all space and time.
