Hundreds of years in the future, on a stagnating and almost empty Earth, a space shuttle pilot from the early days of the 21st century is awoken from the cryogenic sleep he entered after a devastating accident.

As he comes to terms with this new world, he begins to realise that their history does not match what he remembers - and that only he may be able to stop the coming catastrophe destined to destroy the planet.

Until he meets a young woman who seems to have a drive of her own, and a plan...

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is space opera on a vast scale, backed up by Baxter's customary impressive research as he seamlessly weaves planetary exploration, genome reconstruction, climate change, artifi cial intelligence and much more into the compulsively readable narrative. The opening volume of a projected series, it's Baxter at his very best. * GUARDIAN *
It's another triumph for Baxter. A page turner that not only fascinates on an intellectual level, but on a science fiction thriller level too. * SCIFINOW MAGAZINE *
You can rely on Stephen Baxter to come up with solid science fiction that does everything you'd expect a bit of classic sci-fi to do. * STARBURST MAGAZINE *
Hard SF science smarts... yet is great fun too. * SFX MAGAZINE *
