Product description

All the dire predictions came true. The planet is drowning. Nothing can stop the waves rising. For Mara’s people, it’s sink or swim. (Get practising your front crawl.) It’s 2099. The Arctic ice has melted and the oceans have risen. The land is rapidly vanishing under storm-tossed waves. The tiny island of Wing, where Mara lives, is shrinking. There’s no choice about it: her people must escape. Huddling into tiny boats, they start their exodus to the only safe place they can find: a bizarre city that rises into the sky, built on the drowned remains of Glasgow. But even here there’s no safety. Shut out and threatened by murderous sea patrols, they must find a new land – or die.

  • Shortlisted for the Whitbread Award and the Carnegie Medal
  • An unforgettable tale of love and rebellion in a drowning future
  • Explores a global catastrophe with epic scope and chilling vision
  • First in a powerful trilogy that also includes Zenith and Aurora

“A miracle of a novel… a book you will remember for the rest of your life.” Guardian
