Acclaimed author Emma Newman returns to the captivating universe she created in Planetfall with a stunning science fiction mystery where one man’s murder is much more than it seems…

Gov-corp detective Carlos Moreno was only a baby when Atlas left Earth to seek truth among the stars. But in that moment, the course of Carlos’s entire life changed. Atlas is what took his mother away; what made his father lose hope; what led Alejandro Casales, leader of the religious cult known as the Circle, to his door. And now, on the eve of the fortieth anniversary of Atlas’s departure, it’s got something to do why Casales was found dead in his hotel room—and why Carlos is the man in charge of the investigation.

To figure out who killed one of the most powerful men on Earth, Carlos is supposed to put aside his personal history. But the deeper he delves into the case, the more he realizes that escaping the past is not so easy. There’s more to Casales’s death than meets the eye, and something much more sinister to the legacy of Atlas than anyone realizes…

Series: Planetfall #2 After Atlas takes place in the same universe as Planetfall and references the mission in that book but is otherwise an independent and standalone story.

3.0 After Atlas - Planetfall #2
I knew this book didn't pick up right after Planetfall, and that it followed a different set of characters and story, but I didn't quite expect it to be quite so radically different. If Planetfall reads like anthropological sci-fi After Atlas reads like a cottage mystery with a dose of cyberpunk. Th...

4.0 Review: After Atlas
Set in the same universe as Planetfall, but not a sequel, this police procedural follows the son of the previous book's narrator as he navigates a capitalist dystopian Earth as an indentured servant trained in investigation. While some of the aspects of the prophet known as the Pathefinder may be va...

4.5 After Atlas by Emma Newman
Series: Planetfall #2 This was a satisfying read (I’m actually still reeling from the ending, but I thought I should get some thoughts down before they slip away). I’d been looking forward to the book’s release for a few months now and trying not to raise my expectations too high. I really enjoyed...
