'An extraordinary novel... as beautiful and as wrenching as anything I've ever read' Emily St. John Mandel

A dark past. An impossible journey. The will to survive.


Franny Stone is determined to go to the end of the earth, following the last of the Arctic terns on what may be their final migration to Antarctica.

As animal populations plummet, Franny talks her way onto one of the few remaining boats heading south. But as she and the eccentric crew travel further from shore and safety, the dark secrets of Franny's life begin to unspool.

Haunted by love and violence, Franny must confront what she is really running towards - and from.

From the west coast of Ireland to Australia and remote Greenland, this is an ode to the wild places and creatures now threatened, and an epic, moving story of the possibility of hope against all odds.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Compulsive stuff, driven at a cracking pace by the power of the elements and the fierce will of its single-minded narrator * Stephanie Cross, Daily Mail *
The Last Migration is as beautiful and as wrenching as anything I've ever read. This is an extraordinary novel by a wildly talented writer * Emily St. John Mandel, author of Station Eleven *
There's a brooding lushness to this novel's prose that belies its stark premise... this keening lament of an adventure is compelling * Hephzibah Anderson, Observer *
An adventure of a wilder sort * Vogue, US *
A fascinating hybrid of nature writing and dystopian fiction... gripping... by merging cli-fi and nature writing, the novel powerfully demonstrates the spiritual and emotional costs of environmental destruction * Economist *

A beautiful story, wonderfully descriptive with great characterisation.
