A microbial apocalypse has wiped humankind from the globe, with the exception of six survivors. Edenborn continues what Neil Gaiman called a "roller-coaster ride of fusion fiction".What if humanity had the chance to start over? In the follow-up to Idlewild, his brilliant debut novel, Nick Sagan invites us back into his hyper-imaginative world.
Edenborn begins with a stark vision: Humankind is nearly extinct. Only six people have survived the devastating planetary epidemic known as Black Ep. All are now committed to rebuilding a peaceful civilization, but not everyone shares the same vision. Soon, two very different societies begin to form.
As we follow a child from each "family", someone, or something, begins to threaten their innocence. Meanwhile, a mutant strain of Black Ep makes a deadly return. Now the architects who gave breath to this new world must scramble to protect their children from a two-front assault. It's a race against extinction, and we're in it until the end.
"Sagan's sharp observations and rich imagination entertain." (Publishers Weekly)
"A genuine page-turner....Gripping...the kind of book you don't want to stop reading." (Neil Gaiman)
