Ian McDonald‘s highly-anticipated new novel, HOPELAND is due out early next year! Above you can see the cover for the UK edition, which will be published by Gollancz on February 16th. Here’s the synopsis…
Hopeland is not a nation. It is not a cult. It is not a religion.
Hopeland is a community. It is a culture. It is a family.
When Raisa Hopeland, determined to win her race to become the next electromancer of London, bumps into Amon Brightbourne – tweed-suited, otherworldly, guided by the Grace – in the middle of a London riot, she sets in motion a series of events which will span decades, continents and a series of events which will change the world.
Amon falls in love in that moment of chaos, but being loved by him can have a cost. And while Raisa has Hopeland, Amon has a family of his own, and they have their own secrets.
From rioting London to geothermal Iceland to the climate-struck islands of Polynesia, from birth to life to death, from tranquillity to terror to joy, Raisa’s journey will encompass the world. But one thing will always be true.
Hopeland is family.
The novel is due to be published in North America by Tor Books, on February 14th. We’ll share the cover for that next week!
Ian is also the author of the acclaimed Luna series, published by Gollancz (UK) and Tor Books (North America): NEW MOON, WOLF MOON, and MOON RISING. A prequel novella is also available — A MENACE FROM THE FAR SIDE — published by Tor.com.
