, bought-on-audible, scifi, Science Fiction

Trapped on an alternate Earth, the combined crews of a crashed Russian spaceship, a British expeditionary force and a group of strays from the future must work together to survive, escape, and discover what led them to this point. All are from parallel universes where small changes in history led to different realities, and the tensions between the groups are rising.

But some changes were not small. The solar system has been altered, changed, shaped in the various realities, and the World Engineers - unspeakably powerful, completely unknown - are still active. Why have they populated this planet with humanity's ancestors and dinosaurs? What is on the moon of Saturn that gives off such an odd light? And even if they can be found, can they be stopped - and should they be?

Malenfant, Deidra and the rest of their party must find a way off the planet, back into space, and into the many dimensions seeking the answer...

    World Engines: Creator Reviews

  • Mark

    Last year I reviewed the first book in this series, World Engines: Destroyer, with mixed results. It was interesting, unmistakably Baxter, but used Reid Malenfant, a character as its focus that I’d ...

  • Brian Harrison

    A book that promised a great deal, but disappointingly delivered far less. Stephen Baxter is an intelligent and highly qualified man, so I am at a loss to understand this rather ordinary story.Whilst ...

  • Azaqui

    This book is like opera - after 3 hours of the show you look at your watch and realize only 15 mins really passedA tedious, unfocused journey into the lost world, with all the detail no one cares for,...

  • Konrad Underkofler

    The original trilogy by Baxter has always been among my favorite reads. They are bold time spanning adventures examining why and how we are here and trying to answer the question about if there are ot...

  • Jeff Daly

    I was completely uninterested in this. Is it just bad, or not of my taste, or am I not paying enough attention? I wonder about this: the last couple books that I really disliked, had multiple narrator...

  • Kay Smillie

    Not Stephen Baxter at his very best but still full of the big ideas we expect from this fine author. Wrapping up both this duology and the Manifold series. Reading this Manifold series isn't necessary...

  • Paul McKay

    Enthralling and engaging Baxter, as usual, perfectly mixes high level science concepts and factual stellar information with a human story, humour and wit. A must-read for any fan of his work, or a goo...

  • Benjamin

    There are many alternative history interludes that make the plot even slower than it already is. Unfortunately, the alt history isn't interesting enough to justify that and the story already contains ...

  • Tara

    I found this a bit slow and hard to get through at times. Still pretty enjoyable, I especially liked the multiple alternative histories and futures of human space exploration presented. ...

  • Doug

    3.5 stars. A good wrap-up to the whole Manifold series, with an explanation at last. But, some parts of it were a little tedious....
