"'One of the best post-apocalyptic novels you will ever read... Edenborn's success lies in its ability to engage you on such a personal level. A sense of desparation and hope, of desolation and re-birth, fires the story along on a wave of uncertainty that makes for a gripping ride...such an exciting and original take...it is breathtaking'" ( SFX)
"'Second novels are always tricky, particularly when they're part of a sequence, so it is a surprise that Edenborn, Sagan's follow-up to Idlewild, is better written and even more tightly plotted'" (Jon Courtenay Grimwood GUARDIAN)
'Stunning...the novel contains some of the most poignant and moving scenes I've had the pleasure to read...I'm not going to hold back on this one, I believe that 'Edenborn' is the finest book that I have read this year. Idlewild was impressive but Sagan has beaten it with a work of such depth it positively echoes. It's one of those few books that I literally could not put down...Sagan is an adrenaline shot straight into the heart of SF. Do yourself a favour, don't miss these books'
" ( SFCROWSNEST)
Eighteen years after Idlewild and the survivors are adults. Bitter and disillusioned, Halloween has chosen self-imposed exile but his peers intend to repopulate the Earth. Indeed, they are mankind's last, best and perhaps only hope. But an ideological split has divided them into two opposing visions: one seeks to resurrect the human race, the other to improve it via genetic manipulation.
A new generation of children is born, but as they mature it becomes clear that all is not well. Someone - or something - is moving against them, even as the murderous plague Black Ep returns in search of new victims. The survivors must work together, but to save the future Halloween must first let go of the past...

'Elegant SF, dark and haunting, with characters who linger in memory long after the last page is turned'
