Neptune’s Brood is a brand new space opera from science fiction legend Charles Stross. Shortlisted for the Locus Award for Best Science Fiction Novel and the Hugo Award for Best Novel.

She was looking for her sister. She found Atlantis.

Krina Alizond is a metahuman in a universe where the last natural humans became extinct five thousand years ago. When her sister goes missing, she embarks on a daring voyage across the star systems to find her, travelling to her last known location – the mysterious water-world of Shin-Tethys.

In a universe with no faster-than-light travel that’s a dangerous journey, made all the more perilous by the arrival of an assassin on Krina’s tail, by the ‘privateers’ chasing her sister’s life insurance policy and by growing signs that the disappearance is linked to one of the biggest financial scams in the known universe.

Reviews

Neptune's Brood is fast-paced, imaginative, and embeds some fascinating ideas about the economics of an interstellar society constrained by real physics. Above all else, though, it's just terrific fun
Alastair Reynolds
Neptune's Brood is the perfect book for our times

A thoroughly entertaining sci-fi mind-expander from one of the genre's most reliable imaginations
