A matching numbered set O Sylvain Neuvel's 'A History of What Comes Next' and 'Until The Last of Me'.
A History of What Comes Next:
Mia, a nineteen-year-old girl, is sent by the OSS to find Wernher von Braun: Germany's - and the world's - foremost rocket scientist. Her mission: stop the Russians getting hold of him.
But von Braun is suspicious. And so he should be.
For Mia is no ordinary girl. She only looks human. And helping the Allies win the Second World War is just one part of her plan . . .
Because there's an even darker conflict on Earth. A secret struggle thousands of years old. One that has taken generations of Mia's people.
But can the firing of rockets finally bring about its end?
Can Mia, as the last of her kind, bring the stars down to earth?
And if she succeeds, what will happen to us?
Until The Last of Me:
The first rule is the most important: 'always run, never fight'.
Over 100 generations, Mia's family has shaped Earth's history to push humanity to the stars, making brutal, wrenching choices along the way.
And now Mia finds herself about to help launch the first people into space. She can't take them to the stars, not quite yet. But with her adversary almost upon her, and with the future of the planet at stake, it's becoming clearer that obeying the first rule is no longer an option.
For the first time since her line's first generation, Mia will have to choose to stand her ground, knowing that the overwhelming odds mean that she risks not only her bloodline, but also the future of the human race.
