A History of What Comes Next by Sylvain Nuevel is speculative fiction as rich as The Man in the High Castle and as packed with thrills as Ready Player One
This is a secret history of our world like no other…
Mia, a nineteen-year-old girl, is sent by the OSS to find Wernher von Braun. Her mission: stop the Russians getting hold of Germany – and the world’s – foremost rocket scientist.
Von Braun is suspicious. And so he should be.
For Mia is no ordinary girl. She only looks human. And helping the Allies win the Second World War is but one part of her plan.
Because 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. But 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?
