Empty Between the Stars

It is the far future. The artificial intelligences created by humanity are now gods, and mankind mere ants who scrabble in their shadows across a million worlds.

The Lords of the Great Houses on the ever-night Moon of Hexator are suspected of the murder of one of their own. And merchant William Roxley, once a magistrate-priest, is unwillingly coopted to uncover the truth behind the killings.

With only the help of his naive young assistant and a brutish robot bodyguard, the man they call 'Sweet William' digs into the Moon's eerie existence. A collapsing society where many strange, terrible things are happening under night's unsettling cover. 

Hexator is a place where nothing is what it seems, perhaps not even William Roxley himself!

REVIEWS 

Praise for Stephen Hunt's novels: 


‘Mr. Hunt takes off at racing speed.’

— THE WALL STREET JOURNAL


‘Hunt's imagination is probably visible from space. He scatters concepts that other writers would mine for a trilogy like chocolate-bar wrappers.’ 

- TOM HOLT 


‘All manner of bizarre and fantastical extravagance.’ 

- DAILY MAIL 


‘Compulsive reading for all ages.’ 

- GUARDIAN 


‘An inventive, ambitious work, full of wonders and marvels.’ 

- THE TIMES 


‘Studded with invention.’ 

-THE INDEPENDENT 


‘To say this book is action packed is almost an understatement… a wonderful escapist yarn!’ 

- INTERZONE 


‘Hunt has packed the story full of intriguing gimmicks… affecting and original.’ 

- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY 


‘A rip-roaring Indiana Jones-style adventure.’ 

—RT BOOK REVIEWS 


‘A curious part-future blend.’ 

- KIRKUS REVIEWS 


‘Hunt knows what his audience like and gives it to them with a sardonic wit and carefully developed tension.’ 

- TIME OUT 


‘A ripping yarn … the story pounds along… constant inventiveness keeps the reader hooked… the finale is a cracking succession of cliffhangers and surprise comebacks. Great fun.’ 

- SFX MAGAZINE
