The second novel in Isaac Asimov’s classic science-fiction masterpiece, the Foundation series
Led by its founding father, the psychohistorian Hari Seldon, and utilizing science and technology, the Foundation survived the greed and barbarism of its neighboring warrior-planets. Now cleverness and courage may not be enough. For the Empire—the mightiest force in the Galaxy—is even more dangerous in its death throes. Even worse, a mysterious entity called the Mule has appeared with powers beyond anything humanly conceivable. Who—or what—is the Mule? And how is humanity to defend itself against this invulnerable avatar of annihilation?
Filled with nail-biting suspense, nonstop action, and cutting-edge speculation, Foundation and Empire is the story of humanity’s perpetual struggle against the darkness that forever threatens to overwhelm the light—and of how the courage of even a determined few can make all the difference in the universe.

This is my second ever Asimov book, and I love it! My dad convinced me to read the foundation series and I convinced him to read warriors. I am so into Asimov now! 10/10
This is a very solid middle piece to the trilogy. The Mule is one of the most interesting villains ever conceived. Hari Seldon's psychohistory is put to the test.
