In the far future, after the Loss of Earth, war has begun and an unknowable alien race has awakened, intent on the destruction of everything.
Here and now, the end of the world has come. And the only way our species will survive is if two augmented humans can fight their way through apocalypse to a faint glimmer of hope.
Long ago, the seeds of that apocalypse were resisted by the warrior tribes of Britain, with devastating consequences for them and their lands.
And all three of these times will meet on another world . . .
Gavin Smith's writing is a brutal kaleidoscope of imagination, with the raw energy of a heavy metal album cover: equally dazzling with bloodthirsty ancient Picts and the fallen post-humans of tomorrow.
Hannu Rajaniemi, author of The Causal Angel
Age Of Scorpio announces loud and clear that in Gavin Smith an exceptional talent has arrived to uplift SF. The book is a master class of twisting plot lines that celebrate both the weird and astounding, amid a future that's deeply unnerving yet equally compelling.
Peter F Hamilton
This a very readable, fantastical romp across the past, present and future. Well recommended.
Upcoming 4 Me
The Beauty of Destruction is a brutal barnburner that ends an amazing trilogy; it's raw and violent yet it's also brilliant piece of work.
