Publisher's Summary

In 1912, history was changed by the Miracle, when the old world of Europe was replaced by Darwinia, a strange land of nightmarish jungle and antediluvian monsters. To some, the Miracle was an act of divine retribution; to others, it is an opportunity to carve out a new empire.Leaving an America now ruled by religious fundamentalists, young Guilford Law travels to Darwinia on a mission of discovery that will take him further than he can possibly imagine...to a shattering revelation about mankind's destiny in the universe.


What the Critics Say

"Wilson's two-tiered story structure reminds one of Michael Moorcock's work, but it is much more coherent and accessible. In the blurring of character identities, he is comparable to Philip K. Dick or to A.E. Van Vogt. He owes something to Colin Wilson and Lovecraft as well, in the discovery through dreams and archeological wonders of a hidden reality. That he is able to weld the two realities so fluently is remarkable indeed." (Publishers Weekly)

Not much about Darwinia.

I thought it would be more about the discovery of that new land Darwinia, but it turned out to be a boring saga about something rather other.

A Great Disappointment

Any additional comments?

Very complex plot, which in itself is not bad, but in this case poorly executed. Narration was very good, unfortunately the story was not. The lead character is in complete denial throughout 85-90% of the book as to the reality of his situation to the point being very aggravating. The ending is rather ho-hum and is not satisfying; when I read fiction I prefer the “good guys’ to win decisively.
