Product Description

In 2145AD John Hackett’s adventure is just beginning. In Year 30, Mela’s story is coming to a close.

Hackett, in his trusty ship the Perseus, is not just a space traveller beginning his travels with an expedition to Neptune and back but, thanks to the time-dilation effect, a time traveller as well.

His new mission will take him to Andromeda, to get a close-up look at the constellation which will eventually crash into the Milky Way, and give humanity a heads-up about the challenges which are coming.

A mission which will take him five million years to complete. Not only is Hackett exploring unknown space, but he will return to a vastly different time.

Mela’s world is coming to an end. Erosion is eating away at the edges of every landmass first at a rate of ten metres a year, but fast accelerating, displacing people and animals as the rising Tide destroys everything in its path. Putting more and more pressure on the people and resources which remain.

She and her people have always known that this long-predicted end to their home, one of the Thousand Earths, is coming but that makes their fight to survive, to protect each other, no less desperate… and no less doomed.

A beautiful, page-turning story which interweaves the tale of these two characters, separated by both space and time, in a hopeful exploration of humanities’ future, this is Stephen Baxter at his best.
