Waterstones Says

Boasting stunning world-building and memorable characters to really root for, Murray’s maritime fantasy revolves around a mysterious boy accused of being a vengeful god and a fearless young inventor who is the only one to believe him innocent.

The City was built on a sharp mountain that jutted improbably from the sea, and the sea kept trying to claim it back. That grey morning, once the tide had retreated, a whale was found on a rooftop.

When a mysterious boy washes in with the tide, the citizens believe he's the Enemy - the god who drowned the world - come again to cause untold chaos.

Only Ellie, a fearless young inventor living in a workshop crammed with curiosities, believes he's innocent.

But the Enemy can take possession of any human body and the ruthless Inquisition are determined to destroy it forever.

To save the boy, Ellie must prove who he really is - even if that means revealing her own dangerous secret...

Scott Evans (The Reader Teacher/MrEPrimary)

“Pullman-esque with its world building... Struan is a literary genius.”

Set in a half-submerged city that’s Pullman-esque with its hauntingly ethereal world-building, Struan is a literary genius. A cinematic adventure told like no other; I already predict this being one of 2020’s best.... More
