Description

A City Under Threat

The year is 2207. Currents of unrest and tides of innovation threaten to overwhelm Chung Kuo's stability. And some threats are beyond the immense City's control. When a lethal epidemic strikes the Seven's chief supporters, Li Yuan acts ruthlessly to wipe out the disease. But his actions incur far more fatal consequences for the rule of the Seven.

A Ruthless Response
While the Seven splinters, Kwibesi, the detention camp for terrorists, continues to establish order. However, rebellion is brutally contained inside the camp and a growing sense of injustice stirs in its guard, Kao Chen, who begins to question his sense of duty.

The Seven are divided amongst themselves, and around them allegiances are shifting.

Review quote

Massive. Brutal. Excellent. * Guardian * Excellent... with a well-imagined universe, well-executed characters and action that doesn't let up, this is Orwell's 1984 but on an enormous canvas packed with detail * Toronto Globe and Mail * One of the masterpieces of the decade * Washington Post * Quite extraordinary... finally delivers SF into the hands of an English Proust * BRIAN ALDISS * Colossal. A long-awaited, elaborately frightening vision of the future. * Sunday Times * Love, tragedy, joy... all human life (and death) is here * The Times * Awesome. CHUNG KUO carries the hallmark of legend. * SFX *
