Review

Robinson blends mystery and suspense with lyrical evocation of a complex future (SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)

Polymathic, visionary brilliance (FINANCIAL TIMES)

Kim Stanley Robinson is one of science fiction's greats . . . fans of the Mars books will delight in this novel; new readers will be astonished by the depth, breadth and power of Robinson's invention (SUNDAY TIMES)

The real energy and allure of this book comes from its often gobsmacking and always richly detailed epic vision of an extra-terrestrial future - of habitable asteroids, space elevators, a terraformed Venus and Mercury's magnificent mobile city, always on the run from the dawn and the broiling Sun. Wonderful (THE DAILY MAIL)

Goes back to the roots of the sci-fi genre and puts at its centre utopian and dystopian visions of the social models our descendants might inhabit, with a flashy travelogue around the places they might live. It is a novel of ideas that also sets out to be tremendous fun (INDEPENDENT)

Inherently epic . . . a wise and wondrous novel (SFX)

Beautifully written and with strong mental imagery (SCIFI NOW)

A challenging, compelling masterpiece of science fiction (PUBLISHERS WEEKLY - starred review)

A feast for the imagination and intellect - shockingly clever (THE SUN) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Description

The future history of humanity: epic and believable SF from the bestselling and multiple award-winning author of Red Mars --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

The year is 2312. Scientific and technological advances have opened gateways to an extraordinary future. Earth is no longer humanity's only home; new habitats have been created throughout the solar system on moons, planets and in between. But in this year, 2312, a sequence of events will force humanity to confront its past, its present and its future.

The first event takes place on Mercury, on the city of Terminator, itself a miracle of engineering on an unprecedented scale. It is an unexpected death, but one that might have been foreseen. For Swan Er Hong, it is an event that will change her life. Swan was once a woman who designed worlds. Now she will be led into a plot to destroy them.
