Yorkshire, 22nd Century AD. A hard-won peace reigns in Baytown. Michael Pilgrim, the Protector of the North, struggles to bring progress to his community. But clouds of war gather. Rumours travel north: There is trouble in paradise. A new plague threatens the immortal Overlords, the “Beautifuls” of the Five Cities. Those who arrogantly believed themselves above nature are now suffering a grotesque reversal. Now it is they who face the question: Who would you sacrifice to live forever? Can Michael Pilgrim and his friends seize this one slim chance to rid humanity of the monstrous Five Cities? Everything depends on impossible odds—and on a tiny pearl of power.
Pilgrim City concludes the Pilgrim Trilogy, a richly poetic voyage through a frightening and plausible future. “A poignant vision of the best and worst of human nature, where hope never dies.”
