Publisher's Summary

Professor Kilmer, a renowned historian of war and diplomacy, is collected from his home and whisked off to Washington. Thrust into the highest levels of government as an adviser to the President, the young historian must come to terms with the seemingly impossible, figure out how to navigate a world where not everything is as it appears, and use all the skills and knowledge he has acquired in his life to help save humanity from a conflict of truly epic proportions.

A genre-breaking novel that reexamines the human condition and masterfully blends some of the most compelling themes in literature: war and peace, strategy and serendipity, love and friendship, courage and fear, the bounds of possibility, and the limits of imagination. Replete with mysteries that will compel you to keep resisting pause, powerful moments that will stop you dead in your tracks, and insights that will change the way you understand and navigate the world. Most of all...a journey you will not forget.

original and addictive for me as a history and strategic studies devotee. The story is like a theatre production with a minimum of sets.

Deeply impressive - 5 stars are truly not enough!

I'm not sure if I can fully express how much I enjoyed this book. I found it engaging, insightful, inspiring, thought-provoking - ultimately, it was thoroughly delightful and satisfying!

Prior to this book, I listened to Carl Sagan's Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, published decades ago, but only recently available in audio form. Unexpectedly, I found the two books share an important common theme, the urgent need for humans to use our precious gift of superior cognitive ability to rise above some of the detrimental primitive impulses that remain from our evolutionary history; we are encouraged to cultivate the more productive and progressive abilities that our cognitive advantage bestows upon us if we are to avoid extinction from self-inflicted causes or, perhaps, external ones of which we can scarcely conceive. Each of these books emphasized that important theme in a way that caused me to hope that such a movement may gain momentum.

After reading his book, I have to view Deepak Malhotra as a highly gifted and well-rounded individual. I emerged from this experience with great admiration and respect for Mr. Malhotra. I'm left to conclude that he is a careful and deep thinker, and in my view, he is also a most talented wordsmith and storyteller.

Of course, as any avid audiobook listener can attest, the talents (or lack thereof) brought by the narrator have a huge impact one way or another. Mr. Malhotra mentioned in his Acknowledgments that "Chris Hurt is the best narrator I've ever heard in twenty-five years of listening to audiobooks." Based on the superb performance given by Mr. Hurt here, I believe that praise is well deserved.

Audible's author page devoted to Mr. Malhotra states that he is, among many other things, an advisor to governments that are aspiring to end violent armed conflicts. What a wonderful skill to possess, and an influence that is sorely needed during our world's current state of affairs.

Thank you for this most enjoyable experience, Mr. Malhotra and Christopher Hurt!
