The Principle of Moments (Hardback)

Awaiting publication


'The Principle of Moments is my favourite kind of grand space opera where anything can happen and usually does at great speed' Ben Aaronovitch, author of the Sunday Times bestselling Rivers of London series

For fans of Becky Chambers' spacefaring family, V.E. Schwab's magical London and N.K. Jemisin's Broken Earth trilogy comes a sensational adventure across time and space

Asha Akindele lives in a future gripped by oppression, just one more human forced to assemble weapons for a war they'll never win. Then she discovers she has a sister imprisoned by Emperor Thracin and is forced to make a choice: remain a slave, or escape and risk everything.

With the help of time-traveller Obi, who just wants to return to London, 1811, and his almost-boyfriend Prince George, Asha must travel through the stars to save a sister she's never met - and in doing so save worlds.
