Book Summary

Here is the saga of humanity, reduced by an implacable alien enemy to a single colony on the distant world of Safehold. To avoid broadcasting to the enemy the signals of an industrial civilization, the human rulers of Safehold have taken an extraordinary measure: with mind control and hidden high technology, they've built a religion in which every Safeholdian believes, a religion designed to keep Safehold society medieval forever.
