Publisher Description

"Steal-your-breath adventure." —Marissa Meyer, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Lunar Chronicles

Perfect for fans of Fable and House of Salt and Sorrows, this spectacular YA fantasy adventure debut is like nothing else, featuring a unique twist on Treasure Island, a magnetic second chance romance, and a thrilling heist where the reward is great—but the risks are even greater.

In the slowly sinking city of Coconino, Arizona, the days are long, the money is tight, and the rain never stops.

For Jin Haldar, this life is nothing new—ever since her father died in a diving accident, she’s barely made ends meet for her and her younger sister, Thara.

Enter Bhili: a drifter who offers Jin and Thara the score of a lifetime—a massive stash of gold hidden in the sunken ruins of Las Vegas.

Jin knows it’s too dangerous. She stopped diving after her father’s accident. But when her sister decides to go, Jin’s left with only one choice: to go with her.

A ragtag crew is assembled—including Jin’s annoyingly hot ex-boyfriend. From there, a high-stakes heist ensues that’s beyond even Jin’s wildest fears. Crumbling ruins, sea beasts, corsairs, and a mysterious figure named João Silva all lie in wait. To survive, Jin will have to do what she promised herself she’d never do again: dive.

“3.7/5 I might be more into deep sea stories than I thought. This isn't fantasy, is YA dystopian sci-fi, and even as someone who doesn't like YA I really enjoyed this. After a mistake when trying to fix climate change, the clouds get together in a neverending rain that raises the level of the sea and many cities and countries get completely drowned. Our main character lives a tough life with her little sister in a tavern that now is located at first line of the water. The diving parts were the best, the diving at Vegas was TOP. I didn't like the characters tho, and the one I liked the least was the main character, being a single POV was tough at parts. From 24 chapters she talks about her dead dad 22 of them, bit too much. The bad guy started looking really well and it went down with every chapter, not bad, just not as good as it promised to be. A couple of the things on the plot made little sense to me, but it's a quick read with pirates and sea monsters. I'll definitely recommend this.”
“really fun sunken city f/sf work! i loved the characters, and he definitely achieved what he set out to do. thanks for the arc. 4.5”
