Review

An entertaining and thought-provoking novel of post humanity, survival and legacy . . . Children of Time is an enormously interesting and well drawn SF novel -- SFSignal on Children of Time Essential science fiction, a book not to be missed -- SFBook on Children of Time The novel's clever interrogation of the usual narrative of planetary conquest, and its thoughtful depiction of two alien civilisations attempting to understand each other, is an exemplar of classic widescreen science fiction -- New Scientist on Children of Time This is superior stuff, tackling big themes - gods, messiahs, artificial intelligence, alienness - with brio -- Financial Times on Children of Time Children of Time is a joy from start to finish. Entertaining, smart, surprising and unexpectedly human -- Patrick Ness on Children of Time A refreshing new take on post-dystopia civilizations, with the smartest evolutionary world-building you'll ever read -- Peter F. Hamilton on Children of Time Brilliant science fiction and far-out world-building -- James McAvoy on Children of Time My most anticipated book of the year -- Peter F. Hamilton I couldn't put it down. There is an effortless quality to Adrian's writing and you've clearly got another winner on your hands -- James Oswald Wonderful - big, thinky SF that feels classic without being mired in the past, absolutely crammed with fun ideas . . . Anyone who likes sweeping, evolutionary-scale stories will love this -- Django Wexler Breathtaking scope and vision. Adrian Tchaikovsky is one of our finest writers -- Gareth Powell Magnificent. This is the big stuff - the really big stuff. Rich in wisdom and Humanity (note the 'H'), with a Stapledonian sweep and grandeur . . . Books like this are why we read science-fiction -- Ian McDonald You know you're in for a ride. . . This book thoroughly engaged me. Children of Ruin is a humdinger of a book I enjoyed immensely -- Neal Asher All underpinned by great ideas. And it is crisply modern - but with the sensibility of classic science fiction. Asimov or Clarke might have written this -- Stephen Baxter

Book Description

In this powerful narrative, we'll find a human outpost lying derelict in space, the scout ship that discovers it, and a planet best left unexplored.
