Part parable, part coming-of-age story, this winner of the 2013 Arthur C Clarke Award for the Best Science Fiction Novel of the Year is set in an original alien world of dark, sinister beauty and rendered in prose that is both simple and inventive. On a sunless planet called Eden, a young hero breaks the laws, shatters the society and, in the process, changes history. By abandoning the old ways, he discovers the truth about their world.

“A linguistic and imaginative tour de force.”—The Guardian (UK)

“Captivating and haunting…human plight and alien planet are both superbly evoked.” —Daily Mail (UK)
