WELCOME TO ARTEMIS: THE FIRST CITY ON THE MOON
Life on Artemis is tough if you’re not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. For Jazz, a small-time criminal, smuggling in the occasional harmless bit of contraband barely counts. Not when you’ve got debts to pay and your job as a porter barely covers the rent. However, everything changes when Jazz is offered a job too lucrative to turn down. The only drawback…she needs to plan the perfect crime…and survive it…
The Sunday Times bestselling author of The Martian is back with a new classic – a twisty, smart, genre-busting, high concept thriller about a heist set on the moon featuring a strong, sassy, kick-ass heroine.
Praise for Artemis:
“Artemis is the book that proves that Weir is the heir to the mantle of classic science fiction master.”
“After managing to bring hard, accurate science to the masses with The Martian, Andy Weir cuts loose with a lunar-set heist caper that should both please those who enjoyed his attention to detail and those who fell for his obvious ability to spin an entertaining yarn.”
“Weir’s great strength, as he showed in The Martian, is to make us believe”
“Weir’s great skill, as he already proved with The Martian, is his attention to detail… Artemis [is] a triumph of imagination”
“Jazz is feisty, funny and smart”
“Artemis is a fantastic view into what it would be like to live and work on the lunar landscape, wrapped up in smart and gripping novel. A must-read for any future lunar dwellers.”
