Tenth novel in the Skolian Empire series.
"Schism harkens back to the early years of the Skolian Empire, back to the beginning of the war between Skolia and the Euban Traders. Twenty-three years have passed since the fateful vote in the Skolian Assembly that Roca missed in 'Skyfall.' It created the first open hostility between Eube and Skolia, which has only deepened in the ensuing years.
"Now Eube senses an opportunity, for strife has riven the first family of the Skolian Empire. Sauscony, the daughter of Roca and Eldrinson, is ready to seek her fortune as an officer-in-training in the Skolian military. When her father forbids her to undertake such a dangerous path, a rupture develops as Soz chooses duty over family. Eube hopes to make this divide permanent, leaving the Skolian Empire ripe for conquest. And they're willing to kill anyone to make it happen. "; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall; Signed by Author
