A Library Journal Editor's Pick!

Flowers for the Sea
is a dark, dazzling debut novella that reads like Rosemary's Baby by way of Octavia E. Butler


We are a people who do not forget.

Survivors from a flooded kingdom struggle alone on an ark. Resources are scant, and ravenous beasts circle. Their fangs are sharp.
