Waterstones Says

From the author of the bestselling Children of Time, Firewalkers is a powerful adventure set against the terrifying backdrop of a world consumed by fire, where only the super-rich can afford to stay alive. With an unflinching sense of urgency, Tchaikovsky explores crucial questions of right and wrong in this compelling climate crisis and class dystopia.

Signed limited edition.

Firewalkers are brave. Firewalkers are resourceful. Firewalkers are expendable.

The Earth is burning. Nothing can survive at the Anchor; not without water and power. But the ultra-rich, waiting for their ride off the dying Earth? They can buy water. And as for power?

Well, someone has to repair the solar panels, down in the deserts below.

Kids like Mao, and Lupe, and Hotep; kids with brains and guts but no hope.

The Firewalkers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Tchaikovsky sharply addresses the connection between class and climate, weaving pressing ethical questions into a thrilling adventure. This is a must-read for fans of dystopian and climate change fiction." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review * Publishers Weekly *
"A grim picture of a possible future, a diverse cast of interesting and distinct characters, a dollop of mystery and technological shenanigans. There's some good action, tricksy AI, and a satisfying ending. Recommended." -- Civilian Reader * Civilian Reader *
"I'm always impressed with the way that Adrian Tchaikovsky can turn his hand to any style of writing, any theme, and still come up with such wonderfully detailed stories." -- Fantasy Hive * Fantasy Hive *
"Every chapter throws fresh surprises at the reader, continually opening out the scope of the novel, and the imagery is wonderfully vivid throughout... Tchaikovsky focuses the taut story in such a way that every detail is relevant, building towards a climax that doesn't feel possible at the beginning but which, by the end, feels like a perfect pay-off." -- SFX Magazine * SFX Magazine *
"A masterclass in concise storytelling." -- ScFiNow * SciFiNow *

“Highly reommended”

Adrian has become one of my favourite new authors, ever since Children of Time. This relatively short novel shows him again as an inventive, creative and innovative writer. Slightly reminiscent of Jeff... More
