The Moon wants to kill you. Whether it's being unable to pay your per diem for your allotted food, water, and air, or you just get caught up in a fight between the Moon's ruling corporations, the Five Dragons. You must fight for every inch you want to gain in the Moon's near feudal society. 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, at the twilight of her life, Adriana finds her corporation, Corta Helio, surrounded 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.

Reviews

Praise for Luna: New Moon

"Each of McDonald’s viewpoint characters is made human in fascinating and occasionally disturbing detail, and the solar system of the 22nd century is wonderfully delineated." —Publishers Weekly, starred review, on Luna: Wolf Moon

Praise for Luna: New Moon

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

"With an action narrative driving this political commentary, Luna is actually a fantastically fun read as well as an important one. " —Los Angeles Review of Books

“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
