    The Children Of Time

    I was a little dubious about reading this because of my fear of spiders, but despite my apprehension I can honestly say this is one of the best science fiction books I have ever read. The human race has finally killed each other to the brink of extinction, a few ark ships are sent to find a place to begin again on planets that have been transformed to be habitable for human life. Without giving too much away, things don't go according to plan, our arachnid friends evolve quite quickly, due to a unforseen event? The spiders learn to communicate, becoming sentient social creatures, to the point of space exploration? It may sound daft, but it is thoroughly entertaining, moving and though provoking. When human and arachnids meet, it had me wanting the spiders to come out on top, do they? Well read it and find out. Highly recommend.

    Enthralling

    I'll never look at spiders the same way again! The science is not overly expounded on. Just enough to conclude it's feasible. The story line captures your attention and at times your emotions. All around a good book that left me willing to read any follow ups the author may(or not) produce.

    Children of Time

    The best crafted and imagined pure sci-fi book I have read in a long time. Would encourage you to stick to sci-fi instead of your earlier fantasy books. Also really refreshing to have a stand alone not series of books.

    A fascinating read

    This is top-quality hard science fiction. Let's hope he writes some more (instead of fantasy). An impressive new voice.
