Product description


"A hell of a fun book."--James S. A. Corey, "New York Times "bestselling author of "Abaddon's Gate" "[Jason M.] Hough's first novel combines the rapid-fire action and memorable characters associated with Joss Whedon's short-lived "Firefly" TV series with the accessibility and scientific acumen of J. S. Corey's 'Expanse' series."--"Library Journal" (starred review) "The best part about alien stories is their mystery, and Jason Hough understands that like no other. Full of compelling characters and thick with tension, "The Darwin Elevator" delivers both despair and hope along with a gigantic dose of wonder. It's a brilliant debut, and Hough can take my money whenever he writes anything from now on."--Kevin Hearne, "New York Times" bestselling author of The Iron Druid Chronicles "Newcomer Hough displays a talent for imaginative plotting and realistic dialogue, and the brisk pacing and cliffhanger ending will keep readers enthralled and eagerly awaiting the next installment."--"Publishers Weekly" "Jason M.

"The Darwin Elevator" is full of majesty and wonder, mystery and mayhem, colorful characters and insidious schemes."--"SF Signal" "Fun, action-packed and entertaining . . . a sure contender for science fiction debut of the year!"--"Pat's Fantasy Hotlist" "Claustrophobic, intense, and satisfying . . . I couldn't put this book down. "The Darwin Elevator" depicts a terrifying world, suspends it from a delicate thread, and forces you to read with held br

Product Description

Years later, those outside of the machine's protective aura were wiped out by a mysterious plague. When the elevator's virus shield begins to break down, a scavenger and a scientist must unravel the mystery of the failing alien technology to save what's left of the world.
