Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Book three in one of the best post-apocalyptic series I have ever read. The science works, the tension is terrific, the world brilliantly imagined, the characters stunningly real, all in all terrific stuff. He is the son of the astronomer and author Carl Sagan and it shows. You have got to read all three.

The Idlewild Trilogy
1. Idlewild
2. Edenborn
3. Everfree

Similar this month: None but try Neil Gaiman.
Comparison: Greg Bear, William Gibson, C J Cherryh.

Everfree by Nick Sagan

The final chapter in the acclaimed Idlewild trilogy.

A small group of humans has survived Black Ep, the apocalyptic pandemic that ravaged the world. These survivors start to revive others who'd been cryogenically preserved in anticipation of a future free of the disease.

At first, all agree on the basic principles of this new world: how lucky they are to have survived, how they’re all in this together, how they should look out for each other, learn from the past and build a better future.

As more sleepers are roused, there are some – inevitably – who disagree. Those who have knowledge of power do not intend to wait politely in line and this new utopia starts to fracture. But one more surprise awaits the survivors: it comes from a very very long way away, and it will transform the future for everyone in this post-plague, perhaps even post-human, world...


‘a rollercoaster ride of fusion fiction’ Neil Gaiman

'Sagan has a ferocious imagination and...obviously has a sense of wonder in his DNA'

‘A fun and entertaining read, but also startling original…brings the series to an undeniably satisfying and triumphant conclusion’ Sci Fi Weekly
