Titan Books is pleased to announce the brand new science fiction novel called RUIN’S WAKE by Patrick Edwards, which releases on the 12th March 2019.

Inspired by modern-day North Korea, Ruin’s Wake is an urgent look at a near-future world that takes its roots in today’s society. 

An ex-soldier in hiding embarks on a desperate journey to find his dying son.

A young woman trapped in an abusive marriage with a government official finds hope in an illicit love and becomes embroiled in a secret rebel organisation.

A female scientist uncovers a mysterious and dangerous technology that reveals that her world is more fragile than she previously believed.

As the characters try to save what they hold most dear their destiny’s converge, and the fate of the world rests in their tenuous hands…

Ruin’s Wake is emblematic of bestselling writers such as Iain M. Banks, David Mitchell and Adrian Tchaikovsky with powerful themes of love, revenge and identity in a totalitarian word. Patrick Edwards is a brilliant writer, who merges three separate character stories into one epic conclusion that took me completely by surprise – and I am rarely surprised. I do believe he will be a SF writer to watch.
