From the Arthur C. Clarke Award-winning Adrian Tchaikovsky, The Doors of Eden is an extraordinary feat of the imagination and a page-turning adventure.

They thought we were safe. They were wrong.


Four years ago, two girls went looking for monsters on Bodmin Moor. Only one came back.

Lee thought she’d lost Mal, but now she’s miraculously returned. But what happened that day on the moors? And where has she been all this time? Mal’s reappearance hasn’t gone unnoticed by MI5 officers either, and Lee isn’t the only one with questions.

Julian Sabreur is investigating an attack on top physicist Kay Amal Khan. This leads Julian to clash with agents of an unknown power – and they may or may not be human. His only clue is grainy footage, showing a woman who supposedly died on Bodmin Moor.

Dr Khan’s research was theoretical; then she found cracks between our world and parallel Earths. Now these cracks are widening, revealing extraordinary creatures. And as the doors crash open, anything could come through.

Praise for this book

"Full of sparking, speculative invention . . . The Doors of Eden is a terrific timeslip / lost world romp in the grand tradition of Turtledove, Hoyle, even Conan Doyle. If you liked Primeval, read this book." - Stephen Baxter

"With The Doors of Eden, Tchaikovsky has created a fantastic and highly imaginative new genre: evolution SF." - Peter F Hamilton

"As all right thinking people know, Adrian is the best . . . But this, my friends, is the best of the best." - Ian McDonald

"A joy from start to finish." - Patrick Ness

"Unlike anything I've read in a very long time, and all the better for it . . . Tchaikovsky is clearly at the top of his game right now." - James Oswald

"What a ride . . . talks like big-brained science fiction and runs like a fleet-footed political thriller." - John Scalzi

"The Doors of Eden shows a combination of tight, evocative prose combined with erudition. In a story whose scope is the broad canvas of the history of all life in the universe, Tchaikovsky manages to zoom in on human moments without breaking a sweat. Inventive, funny and engrossing, this book lingers long after you close it." - Tade Thompson
