A LOCUS AWARD FINALIST!
Charlie Jane Anders, the nationally bestselling author of All the Birds in the Sky delivers a brilliant new novel set in a hauntingly strange future with #10 LA Times bestseller The City in the Middle of the Night.
WOULD YOU GIVE UP EVERYTHING TO CHANGE THE WORLD?
Humanity clings to life on January-a colonized planet divided between permanently frozen darkness on one side, and blazing endless sunshine on the other.
Two cities, built long ago in the meager temperate zone, serve as the last bastions of civilization-but life inside them is just as dangerous as the uninhabitable wastelands outside.
