    Area X has been cut off from the rest of the continent for decades. Nature has reclaimed the last vestiges of human civilization. The first expedition returned with reports of a pristine, Edenic landscape; all the members of the second expedition committed suicide; the third expedition died in a hail of gunfire as its members turned on one another; the members of the eleventh expedition returned as shadows of their former selves, and within months of their return, all had died of aggressive cancer.

    In Borne, a young woman named Rachel survives as a scavenger in a ruined city half destroyed by drought and conflict. The city is dangerous, littered with discarded experiments from the Company - a biotech firm now derelict - and punished by the unpredictable predations of a giant bear. Rachel ekes out an existence in the shelter of a run-down sanctuary she shares with her partner, Wick, who deals his own homegrown psychoactive biotech.

    For 30 years, a secret agency called the Southern Reach has monitored expeditions into Area X - a remote and lush terrain mysteriously sequestered from civilization. After the 12th expedition, the Southern Reach is in disarray, and John Rodriguez (a.k.a. "Control") is the team's newly appointed head. From a series of interrogations, a cache of hidden notes, and more than two hundred hours of profoundly troubling video footage, the secrets of Area X begin to reveal themselves - and what they expose pushes Control to confront disturbing truths about both himself and the agency he's promised to serve.

    It is winter in Area X. A new team embarks across the border on a mission to find a member of a previous expedition who may have been left behind. As they press deeper into the unknown - navigating new terrain and new challenges - the threat to the outside world becomes only more daunting. In the final installment of the Southern Reach Trilogy, the mysteries of Area X may have been solved, but their consequences and implications are no less profound - or terrifying.

    Area X has been cut off from the rest of the continent for decades. Nature has reclaimed the last vestiges of human civilisation. This is the twelfth expedition. Their group is made up of four women: An anthropologist; a surveyor; a psychologist, the de facto leader; and our narrator, a biologist. Their mission is to map the terrain and collect specimens; to record all their observations, scientific and otherwise, of their surroundings and of one another; and, above all, to avoid being contaminated by Area X itself.

    The Strange Bird is a new kind of creature, built in a laboratory - she is part bird, part human, part many other things. But now the lab in which she was created is under siege, and the scientists have turned on their animal creations. Flying through tunnels, dodging bullets, and changing her colors and patterning to avoid capture, the Strange Bird manages to escape. But she cannot just soar in peace above the earth.

    Area X has been cut off from the rest of the continent for decades. Nature has reclaimed the last vestiges of human civilization. This is the 12th expedition, and their group is made up of four women. Part of their mission is to map the terrain and collect specimens, and, above all, to avoid being contaminated by Area X itself. They arrive expecting the unexpected, and Area X delivers, but it's the surprises that came across the border with them, and the secrets the expedition members are keeping from one another, that change everything.

    Det er vinter i Område X, det mystiske vildnis, der efter tredive års overvågning stadig ikke lader sig forklare eller kortlægge. Mens området langsomt breder sig, er efterretningsorganisationen Southern Reach ved at kollapse indefra, og i et sidste desperat forsøg sender man en ny ekspedition over grænsen. Deres mål er en fjern ø, der måske rummer de svar, de så længe har ledt efter. Men efterhånden som ekspeditionen trænger dybere ind i det ukendte, bliver truslen mod den ydre verden kun større og mere skræmmende.

    Det mystiske Område X har i årevis været afskåret fra resten af kontinentet, og naturen har indtaget de sidste rester af menneskelig civilisation. Myndighederne sender løbende videnskabelige ekspeditioner ind i området, men alle er enten forsvundet eller er vendt tilbage som skygger af sig selv. Nu gør man klar til den tolvte ekspedition. Gruppen består af fire kvinder: en antropolog, en topograf, en psykolog og en biolog. Deres mission er at opmåle området, tage prøver og nedfælde deres observationer om området og om hinanden, og frem for alt undgå at blive inficeret af det mystiske område.
