Angie Redlantern is the first to spot the boats - five abreast with men in metal masks and spears standing proud, ready for the fight to come. As the people of New Earth declare war on the people of Mainground, a dangerous era has dawned for Eden. After generations of division and disagreement, the two populations of Eden have finally broken their tentative peace, giving way to bloodshed and slaughter. Angie must flee with her family across the pitch black of Snowy Dark to the place where it all started, the stone circle where the people from Earth first landed, where the story of Gela - the mother of them all - began.

It is there that Angie witnesses the most extraordinary event, one that will change the history of Eden forever. It will alter their future and re-shape their past. It is both a beginning and an ending.

It is the true story of Eden.

Mother of Eden is a masterpiece. Guardian Every bit as compelling as Dark Eden was... Eden is building into one of most vivid and fascinating places in modern SF. -- Eddie Robson SFX A classic theme, beautifully told. Sunday Telegraph on Dark Eden There's no justice if Dark Eden, with its beautiful, terrifying planet, slowly revealed, fails to bring Beckett awards. The Sunday Times on Dark Eden A captivating and haunting book. Daily Mail on Dark Eden Beckett should be on the radar of anyone who professes concern for science fiction as a literary form. -- Alastair Reynolds
