Waterstones Says

A dazzling, terrifying dystopia about climate catastrophe and the nature of truth, Notes from the Burning Age places humanity’s hunger for power and tendency towards denial under an unforgiving light.

From one of the most imaginative writers of her generation comes an extraordinary vision of the future.

Ven was once a holy man, a keeper of ancient archives. It was his duty to interpret archaic texts, sorting useful knowledge from the heretical ideas of the Burning Age - a time of excess and climate disaster. For in Ven's world, such material must be closely guarded, so that the ills that led to that cataclysmic era can never be repeated.

But when the revolutionary Brotherhood approaches Ven, pressuring him to translate stolen writings that threaten everything he once held dear, his life will be turned upside down. Torn between friendship and faith, Ven must decide how far he's willing to go to save this new world, and how much he is willing to lose.

Notes from the Burning Age is the remarkable and captivating new novel from the award-winning Claire North that puts dystopian fiction in a whole new light.

“Both a tense spy thriller and an epic, thought provoking dystopian - absolutely gripping”

I’ve loved Claire North for a while, so was naturally thrilled to see her latest offering. I’ll confess, I assumed this was going to be a straight dystopian novel; however, I was very much mistaken. North has created... More
