Description

The year is 2067. The city of Rosewater is chaotic, vibrant and full of life - some of it extra-terrestrial.



The charismatic mayor, Jack Jacques, has declared Rosewater a free state, independent to Nigeria. But the city's alien dome is dying. Government forces await its demise, ready to destroy Rosewater's independence before it has even begun.



And in the city's quiet suburbs, a woman wakes with no memory of who she is - with memories belonging to something much older and much more alien.

Review quote

Breathtakingly smart prose -- SEATTLE REVIEW OF BOOKS Hard-edged and utterly compelling -- i newspaper Hugely satisfying . . . a darkly beautiful gem -- SFX In addition to providing a gritty and intricately plotted science fiction mystery, Thompson's opening of the Wormwood Trilogy considers what it means to be human -- Booklist You've never been anywhere like Rosewater. And you've never seen an alien invasion like this. Tade Thompson will take you someplace incredible, full of unforgettable characters and deep insight. Rosewater cements his place as one of our boldest and most exciting new writers -- Sam J. Miller A magnificent tour de force, skilfully written and full of original and disturbing ideas -- Adrian Tchaikovsky, author of CHILDREN OF TIME Rosewater asks you uncomfortable questions about what is right, what is wrong, what you'll tolerate, and what is human -- Mike Brooks Smart. Gripping. Fabulous! -- Ann Leckie Mesmerising. There are echoes of Neuromancer and Arrival in here, but this astonishing debut is beholden to no-one -- M. R. Carey, author of THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS A fiercely weird, breathtaking biopunk tale of alien invasion, Rosewater is ambitious and smart and very, very cool -- Tasha Suri, author of EMPIRE OF SAND As strange, vivid and intricate as the alien biosphere at its heart, Rosewater is a fabulous book and Tade Thompson is a writer of enormous heart and talent. Just brilliant -- Dave Hutchinson
