Synopsis

'A pacy, gripping read that plunges you into this near-future dystopia from the first page.'



'A real page-turner, with relatable characters and lots of twists and turns . . . if you loved Station Eleven this will be right up your street'



'This is honestly one of the best action centred books I've read in a while! Think Titanic meets The Hunger Games!.'



Welcome to the Arcadia.



Once a luxurious cruise ship, now it is home to the stranded. For forty years, they have lived, and died, on the water.



A place of extreme haves and have-nots, gangs and make-shift shelters, its people are tyrannized by a country they can see but can't get to. A country that says it doesn't want them.



Esther is a loyal citizen, working flat-out for a rare chance to live a life on land. Nik is a rebel, intent on liberating the Arcadia once and for all.



Together, they will change the future . . .

Customer Reviews

This is a hefty book and I lost motivation to keep reading it a few times. I was seeking a young adult dystopian romance but this lacked the romance. You see I quite like the end of the world, impassioned love stories because I think it’ll be the last thing on my mind at the end of the world. But also because these are the classic ‘Love conquers all’ metaphors. This book had all the ingredients. It had the jaded male teen. It had the good girl. It had a rebel girl who was the good girl’s elder sister. It had the love-hungry teen. There looked to be a love triangle and a sibling clash. Instead it was a plot-driven book with little depth and no deeper message of worldly politics aside from free speech. The story couldn’t be translated to a different scenario, time or place. It was just what and where it was, nothing more. There was no universal lesson. The story and the characters will be forgotten. I don’t think this is one that will build a similar fan base to the Divergent series, for example. I received this book through the publisher for review consideration. All opinions are my own and are completely honest.
