Engine City

Engine City

‘A hectic ride, through slaloms of audacious complexity, irreverent ingenuity and paradox as purposeful as it is playful’ – SFX

‘Magnificent … a series you’d be wise to follow from the start’ – GUARDIAN

For ten thousand years the varied races of the Second Sphere lived in peaceful co-existence, building their civilisations under the gaze of the ever-vigilant cometary minds.

But then the cosmonauts of the Bright Star came. And with them they have brought a revolution … For one of the Bright Star’s crew has warned that an invasion of the Second Sphere is imminent and has armed the ancient city of Nova Babylonia against it.

Another cosmonaut thinks he’s the very man to lead the invasion. The new regime of Nova Babylonia is certain it can withstand the alien onslaught. Whether it can defend itself against Matt Cairns is a question only the gods can answer …

The acclaimed Engines of Light series that began with COSMONAUT KEEP and DARK LIGHT reaches its staggering conclusion in ENGINE CITY.

Reviews

Distinctive, politically challenging, both tantalizing and satisfying
KIRKUS REVIEWS
For my money, Ken MacLeod is the current champion of the very smartest kind of New Space Opera... every variation on his themes produces something worth re-reading.
LOCUS
Rarely does a book demand so much of the reader-and then deliver.
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
MacLeod's inventiveness, verbal playfulness, and bloody-minded irony never flag for a moment.
