The Nikopol Trilogy Sample Art The Nikopol Trilogy Sample ArtThe Nikiopol Trilogy‘s groundbreaking ideas not only captured the imagination of readers but went on to inspire the 2004 movie, Immortal.

For thirty years, Alcide Nikopol has floated alone in space, sentenced to cryo-preservation. When he finally returns to Earth, the year is 2023, and the world has been ravaged by two nuclear wars!

 But the strangest change in the world floats above Paris – a giant pyramid, home to the recently returned Egyptian Gods, who would like to reclaim humanity as theirs, if only they could all agree…

“I’m beside myself with excitement about,’ said editor, Lizzie Kaye. “It has been out in English before, but many, many years ago, and it’s been out of print for a long time. It’s one of those books that you want for your own collection so you obsessively watch listings just to hopefully get one.  It’s been one of those books for me for the last decade, obsessively watching the listings, I’m beyond excited and it’s going to be wonderful.”

• The Nikopol Trilogy will be available in stores and ​on ​digital devices from March 16 and is available to order from NOVEMBER PREVIEWS (order code: NOV151656)
