In Ian McDonald's Luna: New Moon, the scions of a falling house must navigate a world of corporate warfare to maintain their family's status in the Moon's vicious political atmosphere.

The Moon wants to kill you.

Maybe it will kill you when the per diem for your allotted food, water, and air runs out, just before you hit paydirt. Maybe it will kill you when you are trapped between the reigning corporations-the Five Dragons-in a foolish gamble against a futuristic feudal society. On the Moon, you must fight for every inch you want to gain. And that is just what Adriana Corta did.

As the leader of the Moon's newest "dragon," Adriana has wrested control of the Moon's Helium-3 industry from the Mackenzie Metal corporation and fought to earn her family's new status. Now, in the twilight of her life, Adriana finds her corporation-Corta Helio-confronted by the many enemies she made during her meteoric rise. If the Corta family is to survive, Adriana's five children must defend their mother's empire from her many enemies... and each other.

Praise for Luna: New Moon

“McDonald's never written a bad novel, but [Luna: New Moon] is a great one.” —Cory Doctorow

“McDonald creates a complex and fascinating civilization featuring believable technology, and the characters are fully developed, with individually gripping stories.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

"An engaging thriller... McDonald's portrait of a cutthroat society trying to survive in the deadliest of environments also make it one of the strongest science fiction novels of the year." —The Chicago Tribune

"It’s a great scenario, lovingly detailed, and curiously attractive despite its current of unforgiving violence." —The Wall Street Journal

"The best moon novel I’ve seen in many years. . . McDon­ald’s novel has some formidable SF stingers not far beneath its densely textured surface." —Locus

"The story is innovative and fresh...has a feel of The Godfather meets A Song of Ice and Fire meets Ender’s Game." —Portland Book Review
