About the Book

The first volume of the extraordinary Southern Reach trilogy.

‘Creepy and fascinating' Stephen King.

Welcome to Area X. An Edenic wilderness, an environmental disaster zone, a mystery for thirty years.

The inspiration for the major motion-picture starring Natalie Portman and Oscar Issac. The Southern Reach, a secretive government agency, has sent eleven expeditions to investigate Area X. One has ended in mass suicide, another in a hail of gunfire, the eleventh in a fatal cancer epidemic.

Now four women embark on the twelfth expedition into the unknown.

Now a major motion-picture starring Natalie Portman and Oscar Issac, due for release in 2018.
