Product Description

Review

Its great virtue arguably lies in its very strangeness. (SFX MAGAZINE 2013-12-01) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Book Description

Sensational science fiction from a new global star in the genre. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Inside Flap

On the edges of physical space a thief, helped by a sardonic ship, is trying to break into a Schrodinger box.

He is doing the job for his patron, and owner of the ship, Mieli. In the box is his freedom. Or not.

The box is protected by codes that twist logic and sanity. And the ship is under attack.

The thief is nearly dead, the ship is being eaten alive.

Jean de Flambeur is running out of time. All of him.

And on earth, two sisters in a city of fast ones, shadow players and jinni contemplate a revolution.

There are many more stories than can be told even in a thousand nights and one night, but these two stories will twist, and combine. And reality will spiral.

In Hannu Rajaniemi's sparkling follow-up to the critically acclaimed, international sensation THE QUANTUM THIEF, he returns to his awe-inspiring vision of the universe and we find out what the future held for Earth.
