Eight light years away, a star has died, creating a supernova event that showers Earth in deadly levels of radiation. Within a year, everyone over the age of thirteen will die.

And so the countdown begins. Parents apprentice their children and try to pass on the knowledge they’ll need to keep the world running.

But the last generation may not want to carry the legacy of their parents’ world. And though they imagine a better, brighter world, they may bring about a future so dark humanity won’t survive.

From Cixin Liu, the Hugo Award-winning author of The Three Body Problem, comes a new science fiction masterpiece in Supernova Era. Translated for the first time into English by Joel Martinsen, Supernova Era is available October 22nd from Tor Books.
