Children Of Memory is the thrilling final book in Adrian Tchaikovsky’s Arthur C Clarke award-winning Children of Time trilogy and we’re delighted to not only reveal its stunning cover above, but to have a sneak peek into the novel with an exclusive excerpt!
Firstly, check out the official synopsis of the novel here…
When Earth failed, it sent out arkships to establish new outposts. So the spaceship Enkidu and its captain, Heorest Holt, carried its precious human cargo to a potential new paradise. Generations later, this fragile colony has managed to survive on Imir, eking out a hardy existence. Yet life is tough, and much technological knowledge has been lost.
Then strangers appear, on a world where everyone knows their neighbour. They possess unparalleled knowledge and thrilling new technology – for they have come from the stars, to help humanity’s lost colonies. But not all is as it seems on Imir.
As the visitors lose track of time and memories, they discover the colonists fear unknown enemies and Imir’s own murky history. Neighbour turns against neighbour, as society fractures in the face of this terrifying foe. Perhaps some other intelligence is at work, toying with colonists and space-faring scientists alike? But not all questions are so easily answered – and the price may be the colony itself.
We still have to wait until the end of the year to get our greedy little mitts on Children Of Memory but if you’re like us and can’t wait until then, you can check out an exclusive look into the novel by clicking the image below…
