Winner of the 30th anniversary Arthur C. Clarke Award for Best Novel. Adrian Tchaikovksy's critically acclaimed novel Children of Time, is the epic story of humanity's battle for survival on a terraformed planet. Who will inherit this new Earth? The last remnants of the human race left a dying Earth, desperate to find a new home among the stars. Following in the footsteps of their ancestors, they discover the greatest treasure of the past age - a world terraformed and prepared for human life. But all is not right in this new Eden. In the long years since the planet was abandoned, the work of its architects has borne disastrous fruit. The planet is not waiting for them, pristine and unoccupied. New masters have turned it from a refuge into mankind's worst nightmare. Now two civilizations are on a collision course, both testing the boundaries of what they will do to survive. As the fate of humanity hangs in the balance, who are the true heirs of this new Earth? 'Children of Time is a joy from start to finish. Entertaining, smart, surprising and unexpectedly human.' - Patrick Ness, author of A Monster Calls.

  1. En av de bästa sci-fi böckerna från modern tid.
    Lucas, 10 oktober 2019

    Garanterat en av de bästa böckerna från modern tid jag läst, ny på min personliga topp-lista. Rekommenderar denna bok för alla som har ett intresse av sci-fi! Fantastiskt intressant historia, välskrivna karaktärer och konflikter, riktigt fascinerande perspektiv på utveckling, empati, konflikt, religion, makt och så mycket mer.
    10/10 kan inte rekommendera nog.
