About The Terraformers
Destry's life is dedicated to terraforming Sask-E. As part of the Environmental Rescue Team, she cares for the planet and its burgeoning eco-systems as her parents and their parents did before her.
But the bright, clean future they're building comes under threat when Destry discovers a city full of people that shouldn’t exist, hidden inside a massive volcano.
As she uncovers more about their past, Destry begins to question the mission she's devoted her life to, and must make a choice that will reverberate through Sask-E's future for generations to come.
Praise for The Terraformers
"The Terraformers is so engaging, you could almost miss the pyrotechnic world-building and bone-deep intelligence. Newitz continues doing some of the best work in the field." ―James S. A. Corey, author of the Expanse series
“Newitz always sees to the heart of complex systems and breaks them down with poetic ferocity.” ―N. K. Jemisin, author of the Broken Earth trilogy and The City We Became
“A complete refurbishment of the great galactic story of terraformers. The old pleasures of the planetary romance are reanimated in kaleidoscopic fashion. Startling fun!” ―Kim Stanley Robinson, author of The Ministry for the Future
