The Council of Seven ruled Chung Kuo with an iron authority, their boast that they had ended Change and stopped the Great Wheel turning. But war, famine and political instability, thought to be things of the past, had returned to Chung Kuo with a vengeance. A new generation of powerful young merchants - Dispersionists - challenged the authority of the Seven, leading to what became known as 'the War-That-Wasn't-A-War' - a nasty, guerrilla form of warfare fought in the claustrophobic levels of the Cities. A brutal war without rules. A war the Seven ultimately won. But only just. And now the Seven find themselves vulnerable as the forces against them continue to grow.

About David Wingrove

Novelist and Hugo Award-winning critic, David Wingrove has been writing seriously since he was a teenager and now has twenty-six novels to his credit, along with several volumes of non-fiction. His work has often been described as 'epic' and with some justification: his first published series CHUNG KUO is in excess of two-million words and took almost a decade to conceive, research and plot. His most recent book, The Master of Time, part of the The Roads to Moscow series, was published by Penguin Random House imprint Del Rey in April 2017.
