The award-winning author of Blue Remembered Earth continues his saga as the next generation of the Akinya family crosses interstellar space seeking humanity’s future.

Chiku Akinya, great granddaughter of the legendary space explorer Eunice and heir to the family empire, is just one among millions on a long one-way journey toward a planet they hope to call their new home. For Chiku, the journey is a personal one, undertaken to ensure that the Akinya family achieves its destiny among the stars. The passengers travel in huge self-contained artificial worlds—holoships—putting their faith in a physics they barely understand. Chiku’s ship is called Zanzibar,and over time she will discover it contains an awesome secret—one which will lead her to question almost every certainty about her voyage and its ultimate destiny.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Dividing the tale between two versions of Chiku Ayinya—clones separated by vast distances, but linked by shared history and entangled memories—Reynolds shows he is more than adept at weaving the two stories together. Avoiding the usual weaknesses of middle volumes in trilogies, On the Steel Breeze serves to heighten the anticipation for the final book and is an entertaining read in its own right.”
