Gary Gibson Apocalypse Duology
When your life is based on lies, how do you hunt down the truth?
Jerry Beche should be dead. Instead, he's rescued from a desolate Earth where he was the last man alive. He's then trained for the toughest conditions imaginable and placed with a crack team of specialists on an isolated island. Every one of them is a survivor, as each withstood the violent ending of their own alternate Earth. And their new specialism? To retrieve weapons and data in missions to other apocalyptic versions of our world.
But what is 'the Authority', the shadowy organization that rescued Beche and his fellow survivors? How does it access timelines to find other Earths? And why does it need these instruments of death?
As Jerry struggles to obey his new masters, he begins to distrust his new companions. A strange bunch, their motivations are less than clear, and accidents start plaguing their missions. Jerry suspects the Authority is feeding them lies, and team members are spying on him. As a dangerous situation spirals into catastrophe, is there anybody he can trust?
A riveting, action-packed post-apocalyptic survival story from master of SF, Gary Gibson.
The artefact destroyed an ancient civilization. But will they be next?
Katya is a scientist, working on a classified project for the Russian Empire. She's also desperate. Her bosses want to exploit her knowledge and send her on an incredible, dangerous mission. And if she refuses, her father's life will be forfeit.
Katya must retrieve an artefact that will grant new life to the dying Russian tsar. She's therefore being sent deep undercover on an alternate version of Earth, to an American-controlled island. Here Borodin, the tsar's spymaster, will be watching her.
On the island Katya and Jerry, an American adventurer, form an uneasy alliance. They discover the artefact will call down terror from the depths of space, yet Katya's superiors refuse to listen. But Katya and Jerry's worlds face extinction, so the artefact must be destroyed - at any cost. Two civilizations depend upon it.
