Children of Ruin
follows Adrian Tchaikovsky's Children of Time
, winner of the Arthur C. Clarke award. It is set in the same universe, with a new cast of characters and a thrilling new narrative.
Thousands of years ago, Earth’s terraforming program took to the stars. On the world they called Nod, scientists discovered alien life – but it was their mission to overwrite it with the memory of Earth. Then humanity’s great empire fell, and the program’s decisions were lost to time. Aeons later, humanity and its new spider allies detected fragmentary radio signals between the stars. They dispatched an exploration vessel, hoping to find cousins from old Earth.
But those ancient terraformers woke something on Nod better left undisturbed.
And it’s been waiting for them.

Thu, 2 May 2019 | Review by: EP
terrible service from loot about the book. Release date is wrong from all the other retailers and I phoned PAN Macmillan South Africa and they also confirm the book date for 14-15 May 2019. What is the purpose of having a pre-order for something that loot will only get 2 1/2 months after it's actual release. Terrible service from loot.
