Synopsis
In the mid-23rd century, Darwin, Australia, stands as the last human city on Earth. The world has succumbed to an alien plague, with most of the population transformed into mindless, savage creatures. The planet’s refugees flock to Darwin, where a space elevator—created by the architects of this apocalypse, the Builders—emits a plague-suppressing aura.
Praise
"The best part about alien stories is their mystery, and Jason M. Hough understands that like no other. Full of compelling characters and thick with tension, The Darwin Elevator delivers both despair and hope along with a gigantic dose of wonder. It's a brilliant debut and Hough can take my money whenever he writes anything from now on."

- Kevin Hearne, New York Times bestselling author of the IRON DRUID CHRONICLES

"The Darwin Elevator depicts a terrifying world, suspends it from a delicate thread, and forces you to read with held breath as you anticipate the inevitable fall. Claustrophobic, intense, and satisfying… I couldn't put this book down."

- Hugh Howey, New York Times bestselling author of WOOL

"A hell of a fun book."

- James S.A. Corey, New York Times bestselling author of LEVIATHAN WAKES

"If you enjoy high adventure with a kick-ass crew, I suggest you take Hough's Darwin Elevator for a ride."

- Warren Hammond, author of KOP KILLER

"Hough writes with irresistible energy and gritty realism. He puts his characters through hell, blending a convincing plot with heart-stopping action and moments of raw terror as the world goes crazy in the shadow of unfathomable alien intentions."

- Sara Creasy, author of Phillip K. Dick nominated SONG OF SCARABAEUS

"A thrilling story right from the first page. This book plugs straight into the fight-or-flight part of your brain."

-Ted Kosmatka, author of THE GAMES
