Waterstones Says

A blistering slice of Afro-futurism from the author of Binti, this fast-paced science fiction thriller follows a motley crew of individuals through the streets of Lagos in the wake of a devastating meteorite shower. Smart, edgy and tremendously exciting, Lagoon fizzes with invention and ideas. 

Three strangers, each isolated by his or her own problems: Adaora, the marine biologist. Anthony, the rapper famous throughout Africa. Agu, the troubled soldier. Wandering Bar Beach in Lagos, Nigeria's legendary mega-city, they're more alone than they've ever been before.

But when something like a meteorite plunges into the ocean and a tidal wave overcomes them, these three people will find themselves bound together in ways they could never imagine. Together with Ayodele, a visitor from beyond the stars, they must race through Lagos and against time itself in order to save the city, the world... and themselves.

'There was no time to flee. No time to turn. No time to shriek. And there was no pain. It was like being thrown into the stars.'
