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 Lupe, and Hotep; kids with brains and guts but no hope.

The Firewalkers.

"Tchaikovsky interleaves graphically violent scenes of war with penetrating philosophical insights" - The Guardian on Redemption's Blade

"Great pace, compelling characters, some serious ethical arguments to make, and amazing action scenes. And it's startlingly fun." - on Redemption's Blade

Review quote

"Firewalkers brims with intelligence and excitement." * The Waterstones Round Up * "This is a great story; it has a lot to say, and wraps its larger themes in a compelling narrative that kept me reading all night, even as I didn't want it to end. This is great stuff, and you really should read it." * Sci-Fi & Fantasy Reviews * Tchaikovsky sharply addresses the connection between class and climate, weaving pressing ethical questions into a thrilling adventure. * Publishers Weekly, starred review *
