Eden

(2020)
A novel by

 
 
From the bestselling author of Netflix's The Silence comes a brand-new horror eco thriller.

In a time when Earth’s rising oceans contain enormous islands of refuse, the Amazon rainforest is all-but destroyed, and countless species edge towards extinction, the Virgin Zones were established in an attempt to combat the change. Off-limits to humanity and given back to nature, these thirteen vast areas of land were intended to become the lungs of the world.

Dylan leads a clandestine team of adventurers into Eden, the oldest of the Zones. Attracted by the challenges and dangers posed by the primal lands, extreme competitors seek to cross them with a minimum of equipment, depending only on their raw skills and courage. Not all survive.

Also in Dylan’s team is his daughter Jenn, and she carries a secret––Kat, his wife who abandoned them both years ago, has entered Eden ahead of them. Jenn is determined to find her mother, but neither she nor the rest of their tight-knit team are prepared for what confronts them. Nature has returned to Eden in an elemental, primeval way. And here, nature is no longer humanity's friend.

Praise for this book

"Eden will intrigue, delight and thrill in equal measures. Another winner from Lebbon!" - Simon Clark

"A terrifying thrill ride into nature’s well-deserved revenge on humans, Eden is a chilling warning and a fast, hard read... today’s version of The Hot Zone." - Delilah S Dawson

"Eden is a first-rate, genre-bending thriller, a dark vision of a horrific future full of heartache and sinister atmosphere... Nobody tells stories like this better than Tim Lebbon." - Christopher Golden

"Eden is the ultimate adventure race turned nightmare, pitting the hubris of human nature against Nature itself, primal and emboldened and hostile. It’s a novel that could only have come from Tim Lebbon, melding a fiendish imagination with the heart of an endurance athlete… and a profound concern for the world we must all traverse." - Brian Hodge

"Tim Lebbon gives us a near-future as terrifying as it is exhilarating, and—most frightening of all—irresistibly beautiful. Surrender to Eden." - Alma Katsu

"Against a backdrop of environmental disaster, Tim Lebbon creates a lush, intricate, mysterious and intriguing world – an Eden where anything can happen. The writing is beautiful; the story is haunting and impossible to put down. Highly recommended!" - Alison Littlewood

"EDEN is a perfect torn-from-the-headlines biological thriller. Tim Lebbon mixes action, complex characters, and climate science into an absolute page-turner. This is why science fiction is so important! Highly recommended!" - Jonathan Maberry

"Eden is visceral, cinematic and utterly wild, with a disorienting tone like Tarkovsky’s Stalker but with a far higher body count. It’s another terrifying yet irresistible novel from the effortlessly talented Tim Lebbon." - Tim Major

"Instantly cinematic. A textured, thought-provoking thriller that will make you wonder what the world would be like if humans were to give it back. Eden is a story about family, humanity and the desire to re-experience the wonders we screwed up the first time around. Nobody is as smooth on the lettered keys as Tim Lebbon. Here, as with all his books, you are in the hands of a master." - Josh Malerman

"Eden is both the darkest of fairy tales & an uncompromising, often gruelling account of adaptation & survival... A relentless page-turner in which the planet bites back!" - Mark Morris

"An entertaining, gruesome story of endurance and survival in the last wild places on earth." - Adam Nevill

"Smart, prescient and gripping, Tim Lebbon's Eden takes us, and his team of adventurers, into the dark, pulsing heart of nature, and we all get far more than we bargained for. This near future eco-thriller puts Lebbon at the top of the tree. Read it. And then recycle." - Sarah Pinborough

"EDEN is a smart, thrilling, relentless, eco-nightmare that will worm its tendrils deep into you. Let your own ghost orchid grow." - Paul Tremblay

"Tim Lebbon destroys the world like most of us put our socks on in the morning. But this is different. The catalyst of the story is hope. The hope that humanity survives, against the odds doled out by a planet that has its own plans for survival. Eden is Deliverance with the volume turned up to eleven. A breathtaking ride through the wild - the really wild - that would give Bear Grylls nightmares." - Stephen Volk

"I can smell Eden, I can feel it, I can see it. But I want no part of it. Your senses will tingle and twitch as you journey through a forest of hellish life made real by Tim Lebbon’s rich prose and slick action sequences. You’ll be running behind the team right to the end, and then you’ll want to return to the start of the book to warn them—turn back. This is horror at its best, a terrifying nightmare of nature’s darkest depths ramped up to eleven, but also a love letter to adventure running, and to nature itself. Highly recommended." - Adrian J Walker

"Eden is both an eerie reimagining of our relationship with nature and a breathless page turning thriller. Tim Lebbon has created a vivid, wild world, filled with savagery and tenderness. It will haunt you." - Catriona Ward

"With Eden, Tim Lebbon is at the top of his game. Action-packed, thought-provoking, terrifying, this is the eco horror novel by which all others will be judged." - Rio Youers
