Once the fire of rebellion has been lit, no amount of water can put it out…

The prophecy has come to fruition and Mu has been destroyed.

In Kaori’s verdant Blackland, she faces the grumblings of rebellion and new motherhood. Unwillingly, many of Kairi’s former acolytes are on Blackland. They are unhappy, conflict is brewing, and Kaori doesn’t know who to trust…

In Kairi’s land he uses brutal means to keep the community leaders under his thumb. Unbeknownst to Kairi, people are unhappy with the order of things and they mean to do something about it.

Can these two new civilisations find a footing? Or will treachery once again destroy the lives of the descendants of Mu?

Across the Scorched Sea is a visionary YA fantasy about a newborn society torn apart by secrets and sedition – perfect for fans of Girls of Paper and Fire and Skin of the Sea.
