Metro 2033 Book Description:

The basis of three bestselling computer games Metro 2033 and Metro Last Light, and Metro: Exodus. The year is 2033. The world has been reduced to rubble. Humanity is nearly extinct. The half-destroyed cities have become uninhabitable through radiation. Beyond their boundaries, they say, lie endless burned-out deserts and the remains of splintered forests. Survivors still remember the past greatness of humankind. But the last remains of civilisation have already become a distant memory, the stuff of myth and legend. More than 20 years have passed since the last plane took off from the earth. Rusted railways lead into emptiness. The ether is void and the airwaves echo to a soulless howling where previously the frequencies were full of news from Tokyo, New York, Buenos Aires. Man has handed over stewardship of the earth to new life-forms. Mutated by radiation, they are better adapted to the new world. Man's time is over. A few score thousand survivors live on, not knowing whether they are the only ones left on earth. They live in the Moscow Metro - the biggest air-raid shelter ever built. It is humanity's last refuge. Stations have become mini-statelets, their people uniting around ideas, religions, water-filters - or the simple need to repulse an enemy incursion. It is a world without a tomorrow, with no room for dreams, plans, hopes. Feelings have given way to instinct - the most important of which is survival. Survival at any price. VDNKh is the northernmost inhabited station on its line. It was one of the Metro's best stations and still remains secure. But now a new and terrible threat has appeared. Artyom, a young man living in VDNKh, is given the task of penetrating to the heart of the Metro, to the legendary Polis, to alert everyone to the awful danger and to get help. He holds the future of his native station in his hands, the whole Metro - and maybe the whole of humanity.

Metro 2035 English Language Edition Book Description:

World War Three wiped out the humankind. The planet is empty now. Huge cities became dust and ashes. Railroads are being eaten by rust. Abandoned satellites hang lonely on the orbit. Radio is mute on all the frequencies. The only survivors of the last war were those who made it into the gates of the Metro, the subway system of Moscow city. It's there, hundreds of feet below the ground, in the vaults of what was constructed as the world's largest air-raids shelter that people try to outlive the end of the days. It's there that they created a new world for themselves. The stations of Metro became city-states, and its citizens, torn apart by religions and ideologies are fighting for the now scarce commodities: air, water, and space. This tiny underground world can only remind humans of an immense world they once were the masters of. It's been twenty years past Doomsday, and yet the survivors refuse to give up. The most stubborn of them keep cherishing a dream: when the radiation level from nuclear bombings subsides, they will be able to return to the surface and have the life their parents once had. But the most stubborn of the stubborn continues to search for other survivors in this huge emptiness that once was called Earth. His name is Artyom. He would give anything to lead his own people from the underground onto the surface. And he will. * * * METRO 2035 continues and terminates the story of Artyom, the hero of the original Metro 2033 book and the Metro video games. Millions of readers across the world have been waiting for this novel for the long ten years. For those who have been following Artyom's adventures from the very beginning, Metro 2035 will deliver the concluding powerful part of the saga, with the ultimate part of the puzzle that can't be found anywhere else. For the new readers, Metro 2035 will become an excellent introduction into this unique fiction universe that has millions of fans across the world. * * * Dmitry Glukhovsky's METRO novels have already sold millions of copies in 37 languages. They have also become a basis of cult video games 'Metro 2033' and 'Metro Last Light', and the film rights were optioned by a Hollywood studio. * * * Behind the tense plot and the dark ambience of Metro 2035, there's yet another level: that of social dystopia and political satire. Metro metaphorically paints a pitiless picture of today's Russia, that is being overcast again by the dark shadows of its gruesome past. Do Russians need freedom? Do they want a war? Can they survive without an enemy? Who's to blame and can anything be done about it? Eternal questions. Fresh answers.

The Outpost Book Description:

THE OUTPOST THE METRO 2033 SAGA COMES TO AMERICA From the mastermind of the world-famous post-apocalyptic METRO saga Dmitry Glukhovsky - now a new story set in America! It's been decades since the Last War ravaged the entire Earth, devastating cities, wiping out entire nations and decimating the mankind. While on the other end of the planet the few survivors are hiding in the tunnels of subway, back in America it's the age of Frontier again. Those who made it from nuclear flames of enemies' bombs and survived pandemics that followed have found their only refuge in the Outposts - fortresses constructed on America's only remaining road - the railway. The Outpost of Plattsburgh sits on the frontier of great wastelands, on the very edge of darkness. And out of this darkness, anything can come, lured by the light and the human warmth... Janis is just seventeen. All she dreams about is to hop onboard of an ironclad train and run away to the flourishing South - and start a new life there. She's free to go - and yet she's tied to the Outpost forever...
