DescriptionA Great War has ravaged the Earth and left humankind a shadow of its former self. Faced with the mortality of their race, those who remain press on with a new found humility and strive for equality in their drive to advance the species. Hope lies on the frontier for humanity as new technologies and a profound discovery push them out into space. The chance to begin again is at hand, but will the old fears and the old ways return and hamper mankindâs progress once again? Two girls, the seed of humanityâs greatest aspirations, must find the courage to choose.
âEven though our children are beyond our reach now, we have faith that the future will be a better place than what we know. A faith that people had previously placed in the trust of religion and God, we now place in ourselves, in humanity.â
âYen Ooi's sci-fi debut has the charm and simplicity of a fairy tale, but its scope and its emotional depth will surprise you. Big ideas in a small bottle.â Mike Carey ISBN:9781938444098
