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.

What the Critics Say

"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.
