This groundbreaking new novel from one of the genre’s most respected authors is a thrilling mix of science, magic and politics.
In Harmony, only model citizens are welcome.
A perfect society must be maintained. The defective must be eradicated. For orphans like Nico and Twostar, this means a life that’s brutal, regulated and short.
But Nico and Twostar are survivors, and when they’re offered a way out of the slums, they take it.
Unfortunately, no one told Nico the deal included being sentenced to death for the murder of one of Harmony’s most notorious gang leaders.
Or that to gain his freedom, first he must lose his mind.
Robson is also the author of the critically-acclaimed GLORIOUS ANGELS and the Quantum Gravity series, also published by Gollancz; LIVING NEXT DOOR TO THE GOD OF LOVE, NATURAL HISTORY, MAPPA MUNDI and SILVER SCREEN (the latter two of which are published via the JABberwocky eBook Program).
‘Robson thoughtfully and convincingly explores Harmony’s all-encompassing ideology… all done with Robson’s characteristic verve. The plot is a zippy confection of double crosses and action scenes, and the dialogue is beautifully snappy, Nico’s armoury being replete with snarky comebacks…’ — SFX
‘Top notch characters… a real kickass tale that doesn’t let up.’ — Falcata Times
