As the waters rise, the old world is lost. But a new world waits to be found…
It is 2099, and the world is drowning. As mighty Arctic ice floes melt and oceans rise, the land is sinking forever beneath storm-tossed waves. For Mara’s community, huddled on the shrinking island of Wing, the new century will bring a great exodus. Packed into tiny boats, they begin a terrifying journey to a bizarre city that rises into the sky, built on the drowned remains of the ancient city of Glasgow. But even here there is no safety. Shut out of the city, threatened by murderous sea-police, they are refugees in a world torn between high-tech wizardry and the most primitive injustice. To save her people, Mara must must not only find a way into the city, but also search for a new land and a new home…
