Deep beneath the bank of a Scottish loch, one hundred men, women and children are beginning a new life. An outpost for the remnants of humanity, their mission is simple: to survive in a world rendered uninhabitable by a giant asteroid. Safe from the poisoned world above, they begin their task with vigour. But they are blissfully unaware of the terrifying danger that lurks below.

Six weeks after the world ended, the survivors aboard cruise ship Spirit of Arcadia have installed a small contingent of skilled individuals and families in a Royal Navy bunker. More than just a backup plan for the human race, these volunteers must realise an essential goal. They are to find a way to provide food and fuel for themselves, and for the three thousand other survivors who will one day return in the ship.

Brimming with hope and enthusiasm, the new community is raring to make a start. But their new home is not all it seems, and beneath them, a terrible danger is awakening.

Time has run out for the embattled community aboard the cruise ship Spirit of Arcadia. Their options for survival have dwindled, leaving only one viable course of action. With their outlook bleak, civil unrest threatens to destroy everything they’ve worked for. Yet all hope is not lost. One among them could hold the secret to a brighter future.

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, or so the saying goes. Having lurched from one calamity to another, Captain Jake Noah and his end-of-the-world companions should be tough enough to face anything. But the community has been beaten down by its constant battles against death, and is in danger of imploding.

A last glimmer of hope lies with a young man from a land far away. Does he hold the secret to the future of the fleet? Jake thinks so, but the choices he makes now will spark the most frightening challenges of his life, as forces both inside and outside the ship conspire to try and defeat him.

The bestselling author of The Martian returns with an irresistible new near-future thriller—a heist story set on the moon.

Jasmine Bashara never signed up to be a hero. She just wanted to get rich.
 
Not crazy, eccentric-billionaire rich, like many of the visitors to her hometown of Artemis, humanity’s first and only lunar colony. Just rich enough to move out of her coffin-sized apartment and eat something better than flavored algae. Rich enough to pay off a debt she’s owed for a long time.
 
So when a chance at a huge score finally comes her way, Jazz can’t say no. Sure, it requires her to graduate from small-time smuggler to full-on criminal mastermind. And it calls for a particular combination of cunning, technical skills, and large explosions—not to mention sheer brazen swagger. But Jazz has never run into a challenge her intellect can’t handle, and she figures she’s got the ‘swagger’ part down.
 
The trouble is, engineering the perfect crime is just the start of Jazz’s problems. Because her little heist is about to land her in the middle of a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself.
 
Trapped between competing forces, pursued by a killer and the law alike, even Jazz has to admit she’s in way over her head. She’ll have to hatch a truly spectacular scheme to have a chance at staying alive and saving her city.
 
Jazz is no hero, but she is a very good criminal.
 
That’ll have to do.
 
Propelled by its heroine’s wisecracking voice, set in a city that’s at once stunningly imagined and intimately familiar, and brimming over with clever problem-solving and heist-y fun, Artemis is another irresistible brew of science, suspense, and humor from #1 bestselling author Andy Weir.
