The View from Ararat

One hundred years after the Revolution, Deucalion is a model society and life is good. But all that is about to change.

Available. Dispatched 2-3 business days

Death arrives one day on the C-ship, Pandora, and suddenly no one is safe. Overnight, the old rules no longer apply. When every breath and every decision is a matter of life and death, when every friend is a potential threat, and the only one you can count on is yourself, how deep does your civilisation really run?

In the sequel to the multi-award-winning Deucalion, Brian Caswell takes us a century further into his vision of Humanity's future. Once again, he merges fact with fantasy in a gripping read for young adults and lovers of speculative fiction alike.
