The debut SF novel by an amazing new name in Science Ficiton, Ben Jeapes. * A story of two brothers, two planets, and humankind's first attempt to colonise another world. * La Nueva Temporada is Earth's only extrasolar colony -- an Earth-type planet caught in the grip of a very Earth-type Ice Age. Alex Mateo wants nothing more than to stay and contribute to the terraforming of his homeworld. But tragedy strikes the colony, and to save it from starvation and collapse Alex must reluctantly entrust himself to the only starship in existence to make the long, slower than light journey back to Earth. But it is his brother Quin, who loathes La Nueva Temporada and all the people on it, who must watch his world collapse around him and become its ultimate saviour.
