Synopsis

IT HAS BEEN WAITING THOUGH THE AGES
NOW IT’S TIME . . .

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.

Children of Ruin is the powerful follow-up to the award-winning Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky.

Brilliant science fiction and far-out world-building

James McAvoy on Children of Time

Children of Time is a joy from start to finish. Entertaining, smart, surprising and unexpectedly human

Patrick Ness on Children of Time

A refreshing new take on post-dystopia civilizations, with the smartest evolutionary world-building you’ll ever read
