Climate catastrophe leaves the people of Earth fighting for oxygen in this gripping dystopian thriller from bestselling sci-fi author Alastair Chisholm.

Sparrow lives in the world after the Reek. The atmosphere is toxically polluted, and Axel Brodie, the tech billionaire behind Zephyr Industries, is cashing in as the only supplier of clean air. Sparrow is struggling to help her family survive until her brilliant inventor friend, Miriam Fenn, comes up with a new form of technology that could break Zephyr’s stranglehold on the air supply. But men like Brodie are hard to defeat, and he will do everything in his power to stop Miriam and Sparrow. Who will triumph in this battle to breathe?

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This dystopian thriller … is stripped back to the bare bones of the plot and is all the better for it; this is an unforgettable, pulsating thriller that readers will inhale." – The Bookseller, Editor's Choice "Super-cool dystopian thriller … Great world-building, brilliant characters, awesome action, cool gadgets, and a timely message all in super-readable fast-paced format." – Dan Smith "Fast-paced, thrilling and scarily real in its concept of mass-selling clean air (we already buy bottled water!). The book is so good it leaves you gasping for more!" – Chris Bradford "Fun, pacy and packed with action while incorporating some great commentary on corporations and environmentalism." – Darren Simpson "An absolute masterclass in how to write a super-readable title that everyone will enjoy. Fast-paced, engaging and a nuanced exploration of socio-political-environmental topics. And the cover illustration is just stunning. Superb all round!" – Marianne Doherty, Scottish BookTrust
