It is the setting for rebellions, political struggle, and dark expanses of empty winter. Young, bitter, and friendless, Hayden Griffin is a very dangerous man. He's come to the city of Rush in the nation of Slipstream with one thing in mind: to take murderous revenge for the deaths of his parents six years ago.

Review quote

"SUN OF SUNS is a rip-roaring story full of marvellous images and cutting edge ideas. Schroeder has the rare and invaluable ability to develop wholly new concepts and turn them into compelling narratives. The scientists are already studying Schroeder's ideas. Take him very seriously." -STEPHEN BAXTER"show more
