Until the Last of Me

Spellbinding high-concept fiction as rich as The Man in the High Castle and as packed with thrills as Ready Player One

The First Rule is the most important: "Always run, never fight."

Over 100 generations, Mia's family has shaped Earth's history to push humanity to the stars, making brutal, wrenching choices along the way.

And now Mia finds herself about to help launch the first people into space. She can't take them to the stars, not quite yet. But with her adversary almost upon her, and with the future of the planet at stake it's becoming clearer that obeying the First Rule is no longer an option.

For the first time since her line's first generation, Mia will have to choose to stand her ground, knowing that the overwhelming odds mean that she risks not only her bloodline, but also the future of the human race.

Praise for Until the Last of Me

Praise for Sylvain Neuvel


It's fascinating to see how Neuvel weaves together fact and fiction . . . a blast. Seriously clever


An alt-history with a difference. Traces the true story of the development of rocket science but adds an alien-conspiracy-theory edge in the shape of a fictional team of mother-daughter clones. Along with the problems faced by women trying to change the world (or at least get men to listen to them), they are threatened by a mysterious 'Tracker' who has spent centuries trying to kill them. Good fun


A dark and ambitious book. Neuvel is forging ahead

SFX Magazine

Wry narration, wired action . . . Fans of alternate history and intelligent sci-fi will love this

Publishers Weekly

Clever and compelling, it will keep you enthralled until the end

Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award-winning author of The Oppenheimer Alternative

There's real cleverness at work here. Mia, bent on getting humanity sufficiently technologically developed so that they can leave Earth, makes some dodgy-sounding moral choices as she works towards humanity's salvation

The Times

Highly crafted and unique
