Leyla has reunited with her father and rescued him from Broadmoor, the illegal government prison that held him captive--but not without a terrible cost. Now labeled as one of Britains most wanted terrorists, and separated from the boy she cares for, Leyla and her father must risk undocumented travel through unchartered waters if they wish to find refuge.

Across Britain, the fall out of Mr. McQueen's escape has escalated tensions between Anthropid and non-anthropoid communities, bringing them to an all time high. As Leyla and her friends grow closer to discovering the truth behind Anthropoids, she uncovers her own mysterious connection to the past and the truth behind her father's abduction.

Review quote

A breathtaking, hope-filled underwater adventure that always leaves room for wonder. The story is pacy, the setting lush and original, but it's Leyla and her positive, determined spirit that will really steal your heart.--Laura Weymouth, author of The Light Between Worlds and A Treason of Thorns

About London Shah

London Shah is a British-born Muslim of Pashtun ethnicity. She has lived in Britain's capital for most of her life, via England's beautiful North. When she's not busy re-imagining the past, plotting an alternate present or dreaming up a surreal future, she's most likely drinking copious amounts of tea, eating all the sweets and cakes, strolling through Richmond Park or along the Thames, getting lost on an evening in the city's older, darker alleyways-preferably just after it's rained-listening to punk rock, or losing herself in a fab SFF book or film.
