More About Steve Lawhead

Stephen R. Lawhead Stephen Lawhead is an internationally acclaimed author of mythic history and imaginative fiction. He was born in 1950, in Nebraska in the USA. His early life was lived in America where he earned a university degree in Fine Arts and attended theological seminary for two years.

His first professional writing was done at Campus Life magazine in Chicago, where he was an editor and staff writer. During his five years at Campus Life he wrote hundreds of articles and several non-fiction books.

After a brief and unsuccessful foray into the music business—as president of his own record company—he launched his free-lance career in 1981. In the Hall of the Dragon King was his first novel.

In 1986 the Lawhead family moved to Britain so that Stephen could conduct research for the PENDRAGON CYCLE books. They settled there permanently in 1990, with some years spent living in Austria and a sabbatical in the United States.

In addition to his twenty-four novels, he has written nine children's books, many of them originally offered to his two sons, Drake and Ross. He is married to Alice Slaikeu Lawhead, with whom he has collaborated on books and articles. They make their home in Oxford, England.

Stephen's non-fiction, fiction and children's titles have variously been published in twenty-four foreign languages. He has won numerous industry awards, and in 2003 was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters by the University of Nebraska.

Empyrion II: The Seige of the Dome delivered  Jan 10, 2010
This company delivered the said title in great condition. This is an exciting book that really makes you think about our society and where it is heading.
Going Dome  Jun 6, 2009
In the second book of the Empyrion Series, Stephen Lawhead brings the story toward its inevitable conclusion. The strong points of the series, including its well thought-out storyline, continue in this book. Yet certain aspects of the story are drawn out too long and the ending seems rushed. With the brilliant conclusion written by Lawhead, it seems a shame that it was rushed.

As Orion Treet leaves Fierra in an attempt to broker peace, new plot lines develop. Relationships between the travelers and locals of Fierra occupy too much of the focus of the middle chapters. The explorations of Fierra were quite interesting, including the fish that bring to mind stories of Francis of Assisi preaching to fish.

The villain Jamrog spirals further out of control and borders on absurdity during the war. His character brings to mind a less intelligent version of the Emperor from Star Wars. It is through his fatal flaw that the Christian theme really begins to take form.

The whole premise of this book is built around war. Yet very little of the book is spent in the war. Though it was not on a war on the scale of a "world war", the deficit of action was disappointing. The strategies discussed exhibited an intelligence which paralleled some minor twists in the resolution.

Lawhead's writing is often narrowly classified as Christian fiction or in this case Christian science fiction. However, the writing is never overly preachy and can be enjoyed by non-Christians. Empyrion is an intelligent, well designed series.
I enjoyed this book but only have time for a short review  Dec 19, 2007
As both a author and reader of fiction I was impressed with the Siege of Dome. The characters seemed real and the story line was believable. I guess that I just like books that can hold my interest and make me think at the same time. I recommend this book. Time keeps me from writing a longer review but I wanted to get something posted for I enjoyed this book.

Classic Sci-Fi adventure for teens and adults  Dec 19, 2005
This is book 2 of 2 in the Empyrion series, a delightful "classic" sci-fi adventure for teens and adults (not for children). This volume picks up exactly where book 1 ended. While book 1 was focused very much on adventure, this book fleshes out the characters more: Yarden pursues training as an artist among the Fieri, and Pizzle pursues a girl while they all travel to the Bay of Talking Fish for a special event. Meanwhile, Treet endures capture and torture in Dome and is once again rescued by rebels who aided him before. A civil war begins in Dome as the new Supreme Director seeks to destroy any who threaten his power.

While Lawhead does write for a Christian audience, there is no presentation of the Gospel in either of these books. Yes, there is an "Infinite Father" who promotes peace and a personal relationship, but that's about all you'll find.... more of a simple good vs evil approach. I have loved this Empyrion series for nearly 20 years now, and I re-read them every few years.
Enormously Happy  Apr 8, 2002
Is how I felt after reading this. The Siege of Dome was so rich with Truth. With Allegory, the highest form of Truth. It is Science Fiction as Devotional. Siege of Dome, like Search for Fierra, starts out slowly, but makes up for it in the engrossing later chapters. Through most of the story the two protagonists are in separate spheres- Orion Treet in the evil Dome, and Yarden with the beautiful Fierri. Fierra is a vision of Heaven- although the Fierri are quick to point out it is only a poor imitation of the real thing. Usually the description of a life of a truly good people is rather boring; but Lawhead pulls it off by juxtaposing their lives with the situation of Orion in Dome. Lawhead uses the Fierri to describe- not teach in a preachy style, but show- what a life completely devoted to God can be like. It is a natural search for the Joy present in the Infinite. It is going to a concert and leaving without applauding, because the true joy for the artists was simply performing and expressing their gift in pure worship to the Father. It is searching one's soul to give control to the Creator to finally gain control.

In contrast Dome is a place of rage, anger, and forced control. All that is evil has been pent up there for millennia, breeding upon itself, not allowing real air in. Indeed, when Dome-dwellers or Earthlings first breath real air they initially experience great pain, for the goodness of purity is painful for those who have known only death and decay. The pain is a death we must all go through.

The main negatives: I loved that the Fierri had a firm commitment to harm no living thing, but I found parts confusing when it appears that they do. I think Lawhead could have done more without resorting to killing to have the protagonists win. And Lawhead throughout alludes to a great evil force controlling the religious beliefs and atmosphere of Dome, yet never resolves the battle with this force.

The scariest part: Dome reminded me a lot of Earth.

The most wonderful part: Fierra looked very achievable, if one begins with oneself, one individual at a time. For the good of the many is the good of every individual.
