Publisher's Summary

They thought we were safe. They were wrong.

Lee and Mal went looking for monsters on Bodmin Moor four years ago, and only Lee came back. She thought she’d lost Mal forever, now miraculously returned. But what happened that day on the moors? And where has Mal been all this time? Mal's reappearance hasn’t gone unnoticed by MI5 either, and their officers also have 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 come crashing open, anything could come through.

Adrian Tchaikovsky brought us far-future adventure with Children of Time. Now The Doors of Eden takes us from Bodmin Moor to London and alternate versions of earth. This is an extraordinary feat of the imagination and a thrilling adventure.

What the critics say

Full of sparking, speculative invention . . . The Doors of Eden is a terrific timeslip / lost world romp in the grand tradition of Turtledove, Hoyle, even Conan Doyle. If you liked Primeval, read this book (Stephen Baxter)

The Doors of Eden shows a combination of tight, evocative prose combined with erudition. In a story whose scope is the broad canvas of the history of all life in the universe, Tchaikovsky manages to zoom in on human moments without breaking a sweat. Inventive, funny and engrossing, this book lingers long after you close it (Tade Thompson)
What a ride . . . talks like big-brained science fiction and runs like a fleet-footed political thriller (John Scalzi)

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

go woke go broke

all of the woke stuff feels super forced and shoehorned in there, like the author was just trying desperately to be woke but actually isn't.

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.
