Adrian Tchaikovksy's critically acclaimed stand-alone novel Children of Time is the epic story of humanity's battle for survival on a terraformed planet. Who will inherit this new Earth?

Not entirely sure how to describe this... While it has some great and grand ideas, the story is quite predictable and the end falls flat on its face. It's also bloated with gimmicks and "events" that feel like there are there just to make the story more substantial, but they only make it slow and diluted. Also, the style nothing to write home about... Not a bad book, but in my list definitely not a worthy award winner...
Performance was good.

Angie Redlantern is the first to spot the boats - five abreast, with men in metal masks and spears standing proud. 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.

Wonderful closing of a wonderful and haunting trilogy. CB is definitely on my short list of great SF writers.
Excellent performance.
