Waterstones Says

There’s wild invention and then there is Rosewater, the initial instalment in Tade Thompson’s magnificently-realised trilogy Wormwood. It is 2066, the time of a truly alien invasion, the world in the thrall of a strange entity that has made its unknowable home in rural Nigeria. Its impact prompts spectrum of effect, most acutely felt by the ‘sensitives’ of which the novel’s hero Kaaro is one. Dipping between genres, from biopunk thriller to enthralling futurism, Thompson unspools even the most fantastical of narrative elements with precision and wit.

Winner of the Arthur C. Clarke Award 2019

'Mesmerising. There are echoes of Neuromancer and Arrival in here, but this astonishing debut is beholden to no-one' - M. R. Carey, author of The Girl With all the Gifts

Rosewater is a town on the edge. A community formed around the edges of a mysterious alien biodome, its residents comprise the hopeful, the hungry and the helpless - people eager for a glimpse inside the dome or a taste of its rumoured healing powers.

Kaaro is a government agent with a criminal past. He has seen inside the biodome, and doesn't care to again - but when something begins killing off others like himself, Kaaro must defy his masters to search for an answer, facing his dark history and coming to a realisation about a horrifying future.

Rosewater is the first in a dazzling new science fiction trilogy. The story continues in The Rosewater Insurrection and concludes in The Rosewater Redemption, published in October 2019 and available to pre-order now.
