Description

The last stronghold of civilization teeters on the edge of destruction in this “dystopian thriller with complex characterizations and a riveting main plot” (Publishers Weekly).In a world ravaged by climate change, the city of Osiris offers refuge and hope. Some say it is the last city, while others claim life may yet exist beyond the waves. As a daughter of its ruling family, Adelaide Rechnov is a darling of Osiris's high society. Yet her glamorous world is shattered when her twin brother disappears under mysterious circumstances.Meanwhile, Vikram Bai grew up in the slums of Osiris, where he saw friends die of cold and starvation. Now he risks his life to fight for a better future for those left behind. When their lives collide, Adelaide and Vikram find themselves caught up in a conspiracy that could destroy the city—and the lives of everyone in it—unless they can work together to stop it.“A glittering first novel . . . Gripping, readable, beautiful, politically engaged and wholly accomplished.” —Adam Roberts, author of By the Pricking of Her Thumb
