Arthur C. Clarke Award 2013, BSFA Award nominee 2012.

A marooned outpost of humanity struggles in an alien world: SF as it ought to be from British SF’s great white hope.

You live in Eden. You are a member of the Family, one of 532 descendants of Angela and Tommy. You shelter beneath the light and warmth of the Forest’s lantern trees, hunting woollybuck and harvesting tree candy. Beyond the forest lie the treeless mountains of the Snowy Dark and a cold so bitter and a night so profound that no man has ever crossed it. The Oldest among you recount legends of a world where light came from the sky, where men and women made boats that could cross between worlds. One day, the Oldest say, they will come back for you.

But all is not well in Eden.

You are John Redlantern. You will break the laws of Eden, shatter the Family and change history. You will be the first to abandon hope, the first to abandon the Old Ways, the first to kill another, the first to venture in to the Dark, and the first to discover the truth about Eden.
