Metro 2034 is the original sequel to the Metro 2033 novel. Although it is set in Moscow, just one year after the events of the first book, it is not a direct sequel as it follows the adventures of mostly different characters. Widely popular, it has sold some 300,000 copies in just 6 months, making it Russia's biggest local bestseller in 2009. The book has also been published online for free on Metro 2034 Official Web Site, where over a million visitors have read the text. Glukhovsky has turned a book into an art-project, inviting famous Russian electronic performer Dolphin to write an original soundtrack for the novel, while artist Anton Gretchko worked on the oil-painted images gallery.

SynopsisEdit

Metro2034Map

The Moscow Metro circa 2034

It's the year 2034. From the events that started and ended in VDNKh station not even a year has passed. The Dark Ones once considered as a deadly threat, are gone for good, killed by Artyom and his allies.

On the other side of the Metro, the inhabitants of Sevastopolskaya Station are fighting for survival against new threats that constantly invade them. The fate of the station depends on weapon supplies, which suddenly cut short, along with missing caravans and communication.

To solve the mystery and to bring back the stability of supplies, a small group is sent: young Ahmed, old, unfulfilled chronicler Homer and Hunter - once lost among the dark ones, now found but with a rather uncertain identity... Their small group is extended with Sasha, the daughter of a banished station-master.

Who really is Hunter? Does he return an affection that Sasha feels for him? What secrets are hidden in the dark Metro tunnels? And do the unlikely heroes manage to save the remaining humanity who survived the catastrophe?
