Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

Adrian Tchaikovsky's Arthur C. Clarke Award-winning novel Children of Time is the epic story of humanity's battle for survival on a terraformed planet.

Who will inherit this new Earth?

The last remnants of the human race left a dying Earth, desperate to find a new home among the stars. Following in the footsteps of their ancestors, they discover the greatest treasure of the past age—a world terraformed and prepared for human life.

But all is not right in this new Eden. In the long years since the planet was abandoned, the work of its architects has borne disastrous fruit. The planet is not waiting for them, pristine and unoccupied. New masters have turned it from a refuge into mankind's worst nightmare.

Now two civilizations are on a collision course, both testing the boundaries of what they will do to survive. As the fate of humanity hangs in the balance, who are the true heirs of this new Earth?

Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“This book is a true masterpiece🤌 I was immediately hooked, which doesn't happen often to me. It is an amazing journey of evolution of an unlikely species. It is so original and truly astounding how someone could piece together small parts of thousands and thousands of years and make it flow beautifully and keep you turning the page. The world building is immersive and feels authentic. It's thought-provoking, scary, and captivating all at once. My only issue is on the human half of the book, I was more engrossed with the species side of story during the first half, the writing of their story was more captivating at first. Also, the main human protagonist is SO unassertive, by the end of the book I was rolling my eyes and found my self agitated by him. Which is why I gave 4.5 instead of 5 stars, but this book is incredible, so I might change my mind. This is everything that I'm looking for in a sci-fi book.”
