Publisher's Summary

Angie Redlantern is the first to spot the boats - five abreast, with men in metal masks and spears standing proud, ready for the fight to come. As the people of New Earth declare war on the people of Mainground, a dangerous era has dawned for Eden. After generations of division and disagreement, the two populations of Eden have finally broken their tentative peace, giving way to bloodshed and slaughter.
Angie must flee with her family across the pitch black of Snowy Dark to the place where it all started, the stone circle where the people from Earth first landed, where the story of Gela - the mother of them all - began. It is there that Angie witnesses the most extraordinary event, one that will change the history of Eden forever. It will alter their future and reshape their past. It is both a beginning and an ending. It is the true story of Eden.

Critic Reviews

"The Eden trilogy is a remarkable achievement: with wit, insight and invention Beckett has imagined a scientific Genesis not just about a society, but about the culture and myths that sustain it. It is both politically astute and theologically compelling." (The Guardian)

Surprising ending

This book unlike the other two left me feeling somewhat sad. It also makes you do a lot of inner searching about life, social order, science etc. It wasn't the ending that I was expecting from the trilogy, but the ending I was anticipating would have been just as sad. I didn't like the one person only narration. I preferred the earlier narrations by multiple people. Overall it wasn't as entertaining as the first two books, but the final message was stronger.

Pretty good wrap up to the trilogy

It was nice to hear the ending to the story. A few twists, and a lot explained. Worth the listen.

Unfortunately let down by the narration...

A decent finish to the Eden trilogy, still full of interesting characters and thought-provoking themes but, unfortunately, as an audiobook, it is rather let down by the narrator. Her accents were inconsistent, acting often over done, and the choices made about which accents to use were, at best, lacking cohesion with the earlier books and, at worst, a bit socially dubious. In a world where previously everyone had an accent stemming from the UK, all of a sudden (only ten years on from the previous book), there was a whole host of different accents and the choices of which to use for which group were worrisomely cliched (for instance a small tribal group sounding like some stereotypical assumption of an African accent). There were whole sections of the book where I was so distracted by the narration that I was focused on it rather than the book's content.

All in all, I'd say it's still worth a listen if you want to finish the series but haven't the time to read the book, but if you do have time, perhaps you'd enjoy it more (and get more from it) by reading it yourself.

Excellent conclusion to the series

Rarely is science fiction so good at exploring who we are and why we do what we do. Excellent narrative and wonderful narration. The first two books were fantastic and I almost wanted to leave Eden there, but I'm very pleased to have gone back one last time. :)
