Astra has escaped her enemies, and left behind her friends. But in this new, disorientating world, can she trust anyone?

Astra Ordott is in exile. Evicted from Is-Land for a crime she cannot regret, she has found work in an ancient fortress in Non-Land: headquarters of the Council of New Continents, the global body charged with providing humanitarian aid to the inhabitants of this toxic refugee camp.

Recovering from a disorienting course of Memory Pacification Treatment, Astra struggles to focus on her overriding goals - to find her Code father and avenge the death of her Shelter mother, Hokma.

But can the CONC compound director, the ambiguous Major Thames, protect her from the hawk-eyed attentions of her old enemies? And who in this world of competing agendas can she trust?

The deeper Astra ventures into this new world, the more she realises her true quest may be to find herself.

MEDIA REVIEWS

It's hard-hitting, but it's poignant and incredibly thought-provoking at the same time . . . Naomi Foyle has a mastery of plotting and a way with words that's truly remarkable. - Over The Effing Rainbow on Astra

Foyle has built a fascinating portrait, often reminiscent of Ursula K. Le Guin in its layered complexity, and threaded it into a fascinating coming of age story. Gripping. - Love Reading, Love Reading on Astra

Rook Song is brave and unexpected . . . if you like your SF intelligent and stimulating do yourself a favour and pick up both Astra and Rook Song. You won't regret it. - Upcoming4me

An intensely deep and thought-provoking narrative. It's a beautiful story, unique and daring - Bibliosanctum

A beguiling and absorbing sci-fi/fantasy novel . . . an uplifting celebration of bodily diversity - Blind Spot

Rook Song is thoroughly engrossing, with great edge and energy, full of gritty detail and fierce, intelligent characters. It has the joy of an adventure story and the weight of myth, as crafted by a true storyteller - Bidisha

Offering plenty of twists and surprises, Rook Song outdoes its predecessor . . . Book one was a commentary on how society should live to protect the planet, book two is a comment on how people should prevent international conflict and wars. We can only wait with bated breath to see what book three will campaign for - Starburst

Slow and beautiful and aching, painting a picture of paradise on Earth so close to being what it pretends to be that it physically hurts - Skydancer8

Foyle is certainly a gutsy writer, who is unafraid of dealing with subjects not often discussed in science fiction . . . Foyle's sure-footed, vivid writing takes this story into another, slightly mystical level . . . I recommend this challenging, well written series for anyone interested in complex and immersive stories - Brain Fluff
