Chris Beckett’s award-winning Dark Eden trilogy has just drawn to a close, with the release of the third in the series.
2012’s Dark Eden set up the situation, following the 500 descendants of two shipwrecked astronauts as the struggle to survive on a sunless planet, hoping that a rescue party will arrive from Earth. Our reviewer gave the novel a rave five-star review, praising its “rare level of complexity” and the way it tackled issues like our construction of history, and how politicians become consumed with short-term problems.
We liked the second book too (awarding it four stars). 2015’s Mother of Eden picked up the story several generations later, by which time the society established in the first book had become feudal and patriarchal. Now the third book in the series, Daughter of Eden, sees war breaking out…
Thanks to our chums at Atlantic Books we have one set of signed first editions of all three books to give away. Plus 15 runners-up will bag a copy of Daughter of Eden.
