A new generation comes of age eighteen years after humanity arrived on the colony planet Gaia. Now threats from both within and outside their Trident threaten everything they've built. The discovery of an alien installation inside Gaia's moon, terrorist attacks and the kidnap of a maniac's daughter stretch the community to breaking point, but only two men stand a chance of solving all three mysteries before the makeshift planetary government shuts everything down.File Under: Science Fiction [ The Last Colony | That's No Moon | Save Your Child | The Earth is Dead ]

Children of the Divide Reviews


"An absolutely shining example of using SF to hold a mirror up to our own society... one of the most powerful tools of science fiction, and Tomlinson wields it here like both a scalpel and a shotgun." - Strange Currencies; "New mysteries, action and conspiracies - 4 stars." - Books in Brogan; I've always said Tomlinson wrote imaginative, interesting books that more people should read. I'll say it again now. This is intelligent science fiction, with interesting thoughts on the broader human condition, wrapped in an absolutely smashing story. - Sci-Fi and Fantasy Reviews; "An interesting sci-fi novel with analogies to current events, Children of the Divide is intriguing and fun with memorable characters and situations." - The Bibliotaph; "A thrilling entry in the series. 4.75/5 stars" - The Mad Professah Lectures; PRAISE FOR THE CHILDREN OF A DEAD EARTH SERIES; "There is so much good stuff wrapped inside The Ark: a locked-room murder mystery, bare-knuckle action, and the kind of hard-boiled science fiction that will make your brain pop. Climb aboard..." Adam Rakunas, author of Windswept "This is the story I wish I had written. Generation ship. Detective story. Tomlinson takes such discordant elements and weaves them into a fascinating story: a Manet painting, advanced probes, exoplanet imaging, and more. I'm hoping that this is the start of a new subgenre: detectives in space!" J Daniel Batt, author of Young Gods: A Door Into Darkness; "Another amazing story with all the twists and turns I've come to expect from Patrick S. Tomlinson. With a great mix of science fiction, action and mystery it is wonderfully written and it's not "world" building but as the author said it's 'race building', so don't miss out on the turbulent ups and downs that had me undeniably hooked throughout the entire thing." - Books in Brogan; "A solid read, and one I definitely recommend." - Strange Currencies; "I could not put Trident's Forge down, and read it in one marathon sitting. That is as much due to the writing style and characters as the non-stop, nail-biting story thread. If you're an outer space sci-fi geek like I am, you're going to love this series!" - Popcorn Reads
