Firewalkers

Firewalkers

A thrilling new limited-edition hardcover concerning class and climate change from Arthur C. Clarke award-winning author Adrian Tchaikovsky.

Firewalkers are brave. Firewalkers are resourceful. Firewalkers are expendable.

The Earth is burning. Nothing can survive at the Anchor; not without water and power. But the ultra-rich, waiting for their ride off the dying Earth? They can buy water. And as for power?

Well, someone has to repair the solar panels, down in the deserts below.

Kids like Mao, and Lupé, and Hotep; kids with brains and guts but no hope.

The Firewalkers.

    3.5 stars I'm swaying between 3 and 4 stars and I can't decide in witch direction I should go. So it stays without rating for the time being.It is Adrian Tchaikovsky and so I have to compare it to his...

    This book had two principal effects on me. One was to make me really, really want to read Shadows of the Apt. Adrian Tchaikovsky’s been one of those people in the “I’ve heard his name, and I sho...
