A History of What Comes Next by Sylvain Neuvel

Captivating high-concept fiction as rich as The Man in the High Castle and as packed with thrills as Ready Player One


Mia, a nineteen-year-old girl, is sent to Germany by the OSS. Her mission- stop the Russians getting hold of Germany - and the world's - foremost rocket scientist, Wernher von Braun.

But Mia is no ordinary girl. She only looks human. And there's an even darker conflict on Earth. A secret struggle thousands of years old. It has engulfed and taken generations of Mia's people.

Can the firing of rockets finally bring about its end? Can Mia, as the last of her kind, bring the stars down to earth?

And if she succeeds, what will happen to us?
