Publisher's Summary

From the Arthur C. Clarke award-winning Adrian Tchaikovsky, The Doors of Eden is an extraordinary feat of the imagination and a captivating adventure.

They thought we were safe. They were wrong.

Four years ago, two girls went looking for monsters on Bodmin Moor. Only one came back.

Lee thought she’d lost Mal, but now she’s miraculously returned. But what happened that day on the moors? And where has she been all this time? Mal’s reappearance hasn’t gone unnoticed by MI5 officers either, and Lee isn’t the only one with questions.

Julian Sabreur is investigating an attack on top physicist Kay Amal Khan. This leads Julian to clash with agents of an unknown power - and they may or may not be human. His only clue is grainy footage showing a woman who supposedly died on Bodmin Moor.

Dr Khan’s research was theoretical; then she found cracks between our world and parallel Earths. Now these cracks are widening, revealing extraordinary creatures. And as the doors crash open, anything could come through.

Adrian Tchaikovsky is the author of Children of Time, Children of Ruin and many other novels, novellas and short stories. Children of Time won the Arthur C. Clarke Award in its 30th anniversary year.

Absolutely Stunning

An incredible exploration of contemporary politics framed within a worlds spanning mind fuck of a sci-fi novel. I especially appreciated the LGBT characters, as far as representation goes it was spot on. Trans readers should be aware of some triggering content throughout the book, but I wouldn't let it turn you away from this outstanding piece of literature.

Allegorical traitise of climate change and LGBTQ.

Best thing I have moved through since Orwell and Politics and the English Language. A colorful cast of characters. it was fun figuring out the character translation to habitual and historical entities. The ugly but honest, the direct but dishonest, and the straight shooting LGBTQ. Beautiful as the truth comes be known and acceptance thereafter.

Not the worst, but i wont be recommending it

The story is somewhat interesting but seems to be lacking substance to me. It feels as though the author added a lot of lgbt good/nazi bad rhetoric to make up for the lack. Regardless, it is tolerable. Do i recommend it? No
