Edenborn begins with a stark vision—a microbial apocalypse called Black Ep has wiped humanity from the globe, yet not all is lost. Six individuals have survived the epidemic and are now committed to the task of rebuilding a peaceful civilization. But not everyone shares the same vision, and soon two very different societies begin to form.

As we follow a child from each "family" someone—or something—begins to threaten their innocence. And as the mystery mounts, a mutated strain of Black Ep makes a deadly return. Now the architects who gave breath to this new world must scramble to protect their children from a two-front assault.

It's a race against extinction, and Nick Sagan keeps us riveted to the page.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Will Boncher | 2/18/2014

    " Good sequel to Idlewild, and it ended really strong, but took a while to get started. Excited to see how the series ends. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mick | 2/11/2014

    " This book is a continuation of the Idlewild series. It starts off 20 years after the first book ended and tells the tale of how the varius remaining members are trying to repopulate the earth. This installment lacks the suspense of the first as we already know the situation now. It attempts to fill that void with action and is somewhat successful by the end. Mostly though this novel becomes a moral and ethical battle between religion and secularism with neither side winning. I would recommend this book to those who read the first and to Sci-Fi fans who prefer the Science to take a second hand to character development. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kris | 2/10/2014

    " I apparently read this without realizing that it's the second in a trilogy. I would have liked some more context because I liked the premise (plague ends the world, dying humanity hastily creates ten immune humans and leaves them to be raised by VR). This one focuses on the children of those immune humans. The ending felt very hastily tied together to me, but I enjoyed it and will pick up the first one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marc | 2/9/2014

    " Entertaining characters, but I'm not sure where this story is going... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Christopha | 2/6/2014

    " My 12th grade english teacher would have liked this, but really quite boring. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daviyd | 1/30/2014

    " If the future ever turns out like this because of an apocalyptic destruction then Nick Sagan has tapped into the future and brought it to life... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 C.interruptus | 1/21/2014

    " Picked this up not realizing it's a sequel to a book I haven't read yet. Decent read though jumpy since it's told from multiple characters' points of view. I liked it enough that I'll pick up the first one if I see it on a library shelf. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul | 1/20/2014

    " I like Nick Sagan. He's no genius, but if he keeps writing, I'll keep reading. This is his second book (ever) and it's very imaginative, a vision of a future world with only about 14 people on Earth, and a great mix of virtual reality and gritty reality. Not a book to be overlooked. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom | 1/20/2014

    " Great follow up to his previous book. Very interesting matrix-like plot, with good twists. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirby | 12/30/2013

    " A fun little book about the end of the world. Not enough material to really sink your teeth into but nonetheless enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helga Ganguly | 12/18/2013

    " I liked it better than Idlewild but that's not all that great of a recommendation. The chopped up style with being in someone else's head every other page or 3 pages at the most, was irritating. It makes me wonder if Sagan is making a game of surprising us rather than writing well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 12/17/2013

    " Again, there isn't much that can be said without giving everything away and ruining the fun of the book. It is the second book int the idlewild series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Youndyc | 11/20/2013

    " I'm still liking this series. It gets a little convoluted, because the author tells the story from several different narrative points of view. But it's an interesting view on what we might do as a species if faced with this type of plague event. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brie | 9/23/2012

    " not as good as idlewild but I really enjoyed the relationships in this one. sagan really enjoys keeping the reader completely in the dark, which is fine because the unfolding of his plot and characters is an enjoyable experience. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 2/24/2012

    " The book was ok, but definitely could have been better. The ending was a tad anticlimactic, but there is one more book left in the series. I'm sure I'll read it at some point, but it's not super high on my list. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dorene | 1/14/2012

    " I read Edenborn and thoroughly enjoyed it. Kind of The Stand meets Virus with a little genetic engineering thrown in. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 LB | 11/8/2011

    " Another impulse grab from the library. Weird and boring. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Olof | 10/19/2011

    " This book is just an excuse to describe some characters. There is virtually NO story. Just worldbuilding. Which is a shame, since the author really handle language really well! The last fifth of the book has a little bit of a story. Not enough... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Christopha | 1/22/2011

    " My 12th grade english teacher would have liked this, but really quite boring. "

    " Entertaining characters, but I'm not sure where this story is going... "

    " A fun little book about the end of the world. Not enough material to really sink your teeth into but nonetheless enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leif | 1/20/2010

    " I had worried that it would be hard to keep a series going after Idlewild, but this book managed to cover new ground pretty well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom | 6/5/2009

    " Great follow up to his previous book. Very interesting matrix-like plot, with good twists. "

    " May Nick Sagan become as prolific as his father. I loved this series. Excellent sci-fi. "
