Hot(ish) on the heels of stand-alone fantasy novel Guns of the Dawn, the details of Adrian Tchaikovsky’s first sci-fi novel have emerged! Children of Time is due to be published by Tor Books in the UK in June 2015. To the right is the rather nice cover, and here is the synopsis:
WHO WILL INHERIT THIS NEW EARTH?
The last remnants of the human race left a dying Earth, desperate to find a new home among the stars. Following in the footsteps of their ancestors, they discover the greatest treasure of the past age – a world terraformed and prepared for human life. But all is not right in this new Eden. In the long years since the planet was abandoned, the work of its architects has borne disastrous fruit. The planet is not waiting for them, pristine and unoccupied. New masters have turned it from a refuge into mankind’s worst nightmare. Now two civilizations are on a collision course, both testing the boundaries of what they will do to survive. As the fate of humanity hangs in the balance, who are the true heirs of this new Earth?
