Children of Ruin by Adrian Tchaikovsky
Rate this book
Clear rating
This sequel to Children of Time is a compelling read, well-plotted and well-paced. It falls short of the first book in the series, however. That's understandable; Children of Time is a tour de force. This lacks some of the drama of the first book, ho ...more

Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky
Rate this book

Children of Time is a compelling space opera adventure. As such, it can be a bit cartoonish at times (for example, the character we first meet, Avrana Kern, doesn't come across as being very complex). The fact is, however, Tchaikovsky does a good job ...more

This was N.K. Jemisin's second book in her Broken Earth trilogy, and her second straight Hugo Award. She deserved it for the Fifth Season, and for this one as well. Let me note that while I suppose you could read this novel without having read the Fi ...more

There's a reason N.K. Jemisin won one of her three Hugo awards for this first volume of her Broken Earth trilogy. There is so much to like with this novel (no spoilers):
