by Ian McDonald

Imagine the Borgias on the moon: a saga of greed, ambition and death. A huge cast of strong characters, a merciless environment and a feudal-style society provide the structure of this page-turning thriller. And you will enter a world where sexual identity is fluid and hedonism a marker of social standing.


I realised that the moon was not a safe place. It knew a thousand ways to kill you if you were stupid, if you were careless, if you were lazy, but the real danger was the people around you. The moon was not a world, it was a submarine. Outside was death. I would be sealed in with these people. There was no law, no justice: there was only management. The moon was the frontier, but it was the frontier to nothing. There was nowhere to run.
