Synopsis

The storming second volume in the bestselling Mars trilogy - 'the ultimate in future history' (Daily Mail)

Mars: the Green Planet. Man's dream of a new world is underway but corrupted. Red Mars is gone, ripped apart by the violent and failed revolution of 2062. The First Hundred have scattered or died, and for the moment their dreams with them. The rebels are underground, dreaming of their utopia.

The transnational corporations have a dream, too. Mars can be plundered - for the benefit of a ravaged Earth. It can be terraformed to suit Man's need - frozen lakes form, lichen grows, the atmosphere slowly becomes breathable. But most importantly, Mars can be owned. On Earth, countries are bought and sold by the transnationals. Why not Mars too?

Man's dream is underway, but so is his greatest test. The survivors of the First Hundred - Hiroko, Nadia, Maya and Simon among them - know that technology alone is not enough. Trust and co-operation are need to create a new world - but these qualities are as thin on the ground as the air they breathe.

The original Harper Brothers Company was established in New York City in 1817 and over the years published the works of Mark Twain, the Bronte Sisters, Thackeray, Dickens, John F Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. In 1987, Harper & Row, as it had then become, was acquired by News Corporation. The worldwide group was formed following News Corp's 1990 acquisition of William Collins & Sons. Today we publish some of the world's foremost authors, from Nobel prize-winners to worldwide bestsellers recent successes including the Booker-winning Wolf Hall and Bring Up The Bodies by Hilary Mantel, and George RR Martin's blockbusting A Song of Ice and Fire series.
