Her fellow seekers who hope to build a safe haven together in this dangerous new world But secrets lust and betrayals threaten their dream and after their fortunes take a shocking and bloody turn Myra can no longer ignore the uestion of whether saving Row is worth endangering Pearl and her fellow travelersA compulsively readable novel of dark despair and soaring hope After the Flood is a magnificent action packed and sometimes frightening odyssey laced with wonder an affecting and wholly original saga both redemptive and astonishing. 35 starsIn this remarkable debut most of the earth is covered by water after years of devastating flooding Livable land is minimal and raider ships along with breeding ships are a constant danger Civilization has collapsed and there are no basic amenities Myra and her daughter Pearl survive by fishing and trading for basic necessities When Myra hears her older daughter Row who was taken from her 7 years ago was seen alive in a northern community they leave on a dangerous journey by sea to search for her After running into trouble Myra combines forces with the crew of a larger ship and she will stop at nothing in order to find her daughter regardless of the danger or conseuences This is an adventure tale of survival I won t soon forget The world building was well crafted and the image of this new world was terrifying Yet this book is so much than a survival story It s a story of survival but also a story about grief and holding onto hope against all the odds It s about strength of character and sacrificing for those you love It s about opening up and trusting people when your life normally depends on the mistrust of people I did enjoy this story but it is a bleak one and is overly long with some repetitiveness This novel will appeal to those who don t reuire their characters to be likable There are moral ambiguities and I was left with much to ponder after I turned the last page Marialyce and I deviated from our usual genres with this post apocalyptic book and there was much to discussFor our duo review of this book and others please visit
