Far in the future, the five colonized systems have finally been freed of the curse of religion. By mandating tolerance across all colonies, no one can bring religious persecution upon anyone else.

Things have been this way for a generation. Long enough for most of those living to have never known a Torah, Koran, or New Testament, except in stories.

And the Kesek secret police work hard to keep it so.

So what happens when a bitter teenage discovers a holy book that has been earmarked for destruction? What happens when it begins speaking to him.

And now that Kesek is coming for him and his father and anyone else who gets in his way, what is he going to do with this troublesome book?

The Word Reclaimed is epic space opera amidst civil war, treachery, and  political alliances as sifting as Martian sand.
