Earthfall

‘Haunting, compulsive, urgently readable…Story-telling genius’ – INTERZONE

‘Certain to be one of the most sought-after books of the year’ – LOCUS

The Oversoul of the colony planet Harmony selected the Wetchik family to carry it back to long-lost Earth. But from the beginning there has been bitter dispute between Nafai and Elemak, Wetchik’s youngest son and his oldest.

On board the starship Basilica, the children of the tribe will become pawns in the struggle. Two factions are each making secret plans to awaken the children, and themselves, early from the cold-sleep capsules in which they will pass the long decades of the journey. But the Oversoul is truly in control of this journey. And only Nafai, who wears the Cloak of the Starmaster by the Oversoul’s command, really understands what this will mean to all their plans for the future.
