Artemis

The first and so far only city on the Moon named Artemis reflects the life of porter, and smuggler Jasmine “Jazz” Bashara – wanted to get rich – rich enough to move out of her coffin-sized apartment, eat something better than flavored algae, and to pay off a debt she’s owed for a long time but her little heist is about to land her in the middle of a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself – in the late 2080s.

"The Artemis" Quotes

“People will trust a reliable criminal more readily than a shady businessman.”​

“Five a.m. was a largely theoretical concept to me. I knew it existed, but I rarely observed it.”​

“A clumsy, awkward success is still a success.”​

“It’s a simple idiot-proofing scheme that’s very effective. But no idiot-proofing can overcome a determined idiot.”​

“On a scale from one to ‘invade Russia in winter,’ how stupid is this plan?”​

“And if you want to make babies, somebody’s got to get fucked.”​

“By the way, we also hate it when people . . . call Artemis “the city in space.” We’re not in space; we’re on the moon. I’m mean, technically, we’re in space, but so is London.”​
