Product description

Review

An uneasy read that manages to feel both timely and urgent... Beckett offers an intelligent, visceral reminder that unless we change what today looks like, tomorrow will be turbulent indeed. * Guardian * Compelling... a grim demonstration of how one person can change history, but not control it. * SFX * America City is beautifully written, inventive, with a strong cast of characters... and a plot that makes the reader think, and is another great book from one of the best writers around. * Concatenation * Chris Beckett is a genius * Eric Brown bestselling author of THE SERENE INVASION * The Eden trilogy is a remarkable achievement: with wit, insight and invention Beckett has imagined a scientific Genesis not just about a society, but about the culture and myths that sustain it. It is both politically astute and theologically compelling. -- Stuart Kelly * Guardian * Eden is building into one of most vivid and fascinating places in modern SF -- Eddie Robson * SFX * Mother of Eden is a masterpiece * Guardian * A classic theme, beautifully told * Sunday Telegraph on Dark Eden * A captivating and haunting book * Daily Mail on Dark Eden *
