Destiny's Children Book Three

'The girl from the future told me the sky is full of dying worlds'.

As the world struggles through the middle years of the 21st century: global warming, the end of oil, Michael Poole is being haunted.  By the far future.  Or a far future at least.
A future where the Transcendents have made themselves into something unimaginably powerful, unimaginably different.  A future where they would be on the cusp of godhood and would finally leave being human behind.
But a future tortured by regret.  A very human regret.  A regret that has to be resolved before they can achieve godhood.
A future that must fold down into the present.
And in that far future a young woman begins an epic journey, across the countless human worlds where mankind has evolved into countless different forms, towards the Transcendence and a different way of being.




'Strong imagination and a capacity for awe abound in the work of Stephen Baxter.  A truly Wellsian vision'
The Times Literary Supplement

'Absurdly ambitious, technically brilliant and downright exciting'
