Product Information :
Jazz Bashara is a criminal.

Well, sort of. Life on Artemis, the first and only city on the moon, is tough if you're not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. So smuggling in the occasional harmless bit of contraband barely counts, right? Not when you've got debts to pay and your job as a porter barely covers the rent.

Everything changes when Jazz sees the chance to commit the perfect crime, with a reward too lucrative to turn down. But pulling off the impossible is just the start of Jazz's problems, as she learns that she's stepped square into a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself - and that now, her only chance at survival lies in a gambit even more unlikely than the first.

Review

"Weir has done it again: he?s created a diverse and fantastic new world, filled with eclectic and memorable characters, and woven them into a dazzling work of contemporary science fiction ? one that?s chock-full of actual science. Artemis is everything you could hope for in a follow-up to his smash debut The Martian: another smart, fun, fast-paced adventure that you won?t be able to put down, featuring a heroine who?s equal parts Ellen Ripley, Arya Stark, and Jyn Erso. I can?t recommend it enough!" (Ernest Cline)

"All the things I loved about The Martian are here in spades?the hard science Weir somehow makes accessible and riveting, the masterful, never-see-it-coming plotting, but most of all the voice of his new protagonist, Jazz Bashara?an irreverent, witty, vulnerable heroine, who, just like Mark Watney, is exactly the kind of character you?ll want to spend a book with. With Artemis, Andy Weir has done the impossible?he?s topped The Martian with a sci-fi-noir-thriller set in a city on the moon. What more do you want from life? Go read it!" (Blake Crouch)

"The sophisticated world building incorporates politics and economics, as well as scientifically plausible ways for a small city to function on the lunar surface. The independent, wisecracking lead could easily sustain a series. Weir leavens the hard SF with a healthy dose of humour." (Publishers Weekly)

"This exciting, whip-smart thrill-ride boasts a wonderful cast of characters, a wide cultural milieu and the appeal of a striking young woman as the main character...one of the best science fiction novels of the year!" (Booklist)

"Narrated by a kick-ass leading lady, this thriller has it all ? a smart plot, laugh-out-loud funny moments, and really cool science. A four-star read" (Library Journal (Starred Review))
