Editorial Reviews

Review

[A] novel in which New York City has been drowned...The city had adapted in this novel, as I can only imagine it would in reality: with sky bridges, with boats, with enterprise. Still, you can't deny that from our current vantage, it's a disaster zone.

-- "Literary Hub"

A thoroughly enjoyable exercise in world building, written with a clear-eyed love for the city's past, present, and future.

-- "Kirkus Reviews"

A towering novel about a genuinely grave threat to civilization.

-- "Guardian (London)"

As much a critique of contemporary capitalism, social mores, and timeless human foibles, this energetic, multilayered narrative is also a model of visionary world-building.

-- "RT Book Reviews (4 1/2 stars, Top Pick!)"

Massively enjoyable.

-- " Washington Post"

New York may be underwater, but it's better than ever.

-- "New Yorker"

Nine voices weave a complex tapestry of horror and hope in an all-too-believable dystopian future...The wonderful narrator Robert Blumenfeld often introduces whatever main character is featured at the time. This works beautifully to tie together the many characters and the voices that portray them. All the voices are distinctive and compelling-from the parentless urchins to the tough female cop and a dozen others. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.

-- "AudioFile"

Relevant and essential.
