Evening's Empires, Paperback / softback Book


In the far future, a young man stands on a barren asteroid.

His ship has been stolen, his family kidnapped or worse, and all he has on his side is a semi-intelligent spacesuit.

The only member of the crew to escape, Hari has barely been off his ship before.

It was his birthplace, his home and his future. He's going to get it back. McAuley's latest novel is set in the same far-flung future as his last few novels, but this time he takes on a much more personal story.

This is a tale of revenge, of murder and morality, of growing up and discovering the world around you.

Throughout the novel we follow Hari's viewpoint, and as he unravels the mysteries that led to his stranding, we discover them alongside him.

But throughout his journeys, Hari must always bear one thing in mind. Nobody is to be trusted.
