Book Synopsis



In this gripping and atmospheric reimagining of Antigone, #1 New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth reaches back to the root of legend and delivers a world of tomorrow both timeless and unexpected.

"I'm cursed, haven't you heard?"

Outside the last city on Earth, the planet is a wasteland. Without the Archive, where the genes of the dead are stored, humanity will end.

Antigone's parents - Oedipus and Jocasta - are dead. Passing into the Archive should be cause for celebration, but with her militant uncle Kreon rising to claim her father's vacant throne, all Antigone feels is rage.

When he welcomes her and her siblings into his mansion, Antigone sees it for what it really is: a gilded cage, where she is a captive as well as a guest.

But her uncle will soon learn that no cage is unbreakable. And neither is he.

"Roth is a masterful conjurer, summoning both classic myth and visceral dystopia to weave a breathtaking tale of love, avarice, and the timeless desire for revenge." -- Ryka Aoki, bestselling author of Light From Uncommon Stars



Review Quotes




"Arch-Conspirator is a gut punch of a story. Roth takes everything fragile about love, everything powerful about certain doom, and blooms with it. You'll be holding your breath until the very last word."--Olivie Blake, New York Times bestselling author of The Atlas Six

Roth's powerful retelling of Antigone transforms a bleak classical tragedy into a story of ferocious, bittersweet triumph--all set against the backdrop of a ravaged post-apocalyptic future.--Sunyi Dean, bestselling author of The Book Eaters

Tragic and triumphant in equal measure. Roth is a storyteller who reaches new heights with every tale.--John Scalzi, bestselling author of The Kaiju Preservation Society

"An elegant, pressingly relevant Antigone retelling, with a fascinating chorus of viewpoints that both complicates and elucidates its complex themes."--Shelley Parker-Chan, bestselling author of She Who Became the Sun

"Heartbreaking, intimate, inevitable. The worldbuilding tightens around the neck in a way that perfectly matches the noose-tension of the dramatic tragedy."--Max Gladstone, co-author of This Is How You Lose the Time War

"Veronica Roth's Arch-Conspirator, is something rare and magnificent--a novella of epic voice and scale. Roth is a masterful conjurer, summoning both classic myth and visceral dystopia to weave a breathtaking tale of love, avarice, and the timeless desire for revenge."--Ryka Aoki, bestselling author of Light From Uncommon Stars

[A] taut, defiant reenvisioning of Sophocles's Antigone.... The plot preserves the shape of the original without ever losing the capacity to surprise and, more importantly, prod reflection and recognition. This powerful tale of reproductive oppression is sure to wow.--Publishers Weekly, STARRED review

Praise for Veronica Roth:

"A hugely-imagined, twisty, turning tale that leads through the labyrinths of magic and war to the center of the heart."--Diana Gabaldon, author of the New York Times best-selling Outlander series

This dark, complex novel rocked my heart and left me with a renewed sense that saving the world is a job that never ends. Roth's version of magic is as flawed and fascinating as her characters, and her story keeps you guessing until the wild conclusion.--Charlie Jane Anders, Hugo & Nebula Award winning author of The City in the Middle of the Night

"A virtuoso performance... like nothing I've read before."--Blake Crouch, New York Times bestselling author of Recursion

Roth somehow manages to make universe-building look easy. She sets it all up--world, characters, premise--so smoothly that you hardly notice until you're a hundred pages in and hurtling down the tracks."--Charles Yu, author of Interior Chinatown
