The continuing saga of the Five Dragons,Ian McDonald's fast-paced, intricately plotted space opera pitched asGame of Thrones meetsThe Expanse

A hundred years in the future, a war wages between the Five Dragons—five families that control the Moon’s leading industrial companies. Each clan does everything in their power to claw their way to the top of the food chain—marriages of convenience, corporate espionage, kidnapping, and mass assassinations.

Through ingenious political manipulation and sheer force of will, Lucas Cortas rises from the ashes of corporate defeat and seizes control of the Moon. The only person who can stop him is a brilliant lunar lawyer, his sister, Ariel.

Witness the Dragons' final battle for absolute sovereignty in Ian McDonald's heart-stopping finale to the Luna trilogy.

Praise forLuna: Wolf Moon

"Spare, simple, elegant when he needs to be...deep and meaty when he wants to be...[Mcdonald] does his work like an artisan pulling a sculpture from stone. " —NPR

"Each of McDonald’s viewpoint characters is made human in fascinating and occasionally disturbing detail, and the solar system of the 22nd century is wonderfully delineated." —Publishers Weekly, starred review

"The fights and vengeance that follow are more vicious and intricate than anything inGame of Thrones, full of great acts of self-sacrifice and viciousness alike, brave cavalry charges and last stands, cowardice and avarice." —Boing Boing

"For all the enjoyable intrigue he concocts, McDonald never lets us forget that the Moon is a frontier that basically just wants to kill us." —Chicago Tribune

Praise forLuna: New Moon

“McDonald's never written a bad novel, but [Luna: New Moon] is a great one.” —Cory Doctorow

"With an action narrative driving this political commentary,Lunais actually a fantastically fun read as well as an important one. " —Los Angeles Review of Books

“McDonald creates a complex and fascinating civilization featuring believable technology, and the characters are fully developed, with individually gripping stories.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

"An engaging thriller... McDonald's portrait of a cutthroat society trying to survive in the deadliest of environments also make it one of the strongest science fiction novels of the year." —The Chicago Tribune

"It’s a great scenario, lovingly detailed, and curiously attractive despite its current of unforgiving violence." —The Wall Street Journal

"The best moon novel I’ve seen in many years. . . McDon­ald’s novel has some formidable SF stingers not far beneath its densely textured surface." —Locus

"The story is innovative and fresh...has a feel ofThe Godfather meetsA Song of Ice and Fire meetsEnder’s Game." —Portland Book Review
