In this unforgettable conclusion to Nancy Kress’ groundbreaking trilogy which began with the Nebula Award–winning Beggars in Spain, it is now two hundred years in the future. Regular human beings hate and fear the Sleepless and the SuperSleepless, genetically modified humans who are immune to disease and hunger and do not need to sleep. When the Sleepless plot to take over the world and leave regular humans powerless, civilization and the very meaning of the word “human” hang in the balance.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Kress brings her Beggars trilogy to a powerful close…The scale of Kress’ vision is large as she lays out a drama that—convincingly if unsurprisingly—argues that moral quandaries can’t be addressed by technology.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Kress shows us the pitfalls in a world dependent on medical technology and the consequences for humans. Highly recommended for SF collections.”

    Library Journal

  • “Masterful…Kress continues in the same tradition of terrific storytelling.”

    School Library Journal

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Kyrie | 11/7/2013

    " After Beggars and Choosers, I was expecting so much more. This tale took an unexpected turn and as a result, I didn't like it as well as the first two in the trilogy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Colleen | 10/21/2013

    " Nancy Kress...wow! This book gets better as it goes. Have to reread Beggars in Spain and read the second in the trilogy. Kress is thought-provoking and hard-hitting...and if you like hard science, she can deliver. "

    " Satisfying completion to the trilogy. Provocative story on how the talented and mundane interact. "
