City of Crows
No crops, no metal, no people. The world is empty.
After two hundred years of plague, war, and upheaval the Earth’s population has given up on their planet, and have chosen to enter the cryogenics Warehouses and await transportation to new worlds a thousand light-years away. Outside their storage facilities, the surface lies abandoned.
Martin Jones and his sister Agnes volunteered to spend ten years as members of the Watch, overseeing the nations who sleep and await their turn in the transport ships. Assigned to the warehouses in Oxford, the city is a playground to explore – until Agnes dies, leaving Martin trying desperately to contact her again. But Agnes’ is not the only voice that’s coming through – Oxford is full of ghosts, all clamouring to be heard now that Martin is listening.
The countdown to embarkation has begun, and Agnes has returned to warn her brother of the dangerous lies he’s been told by his friends and bosses. Guided by the cat that only he can see, the crows, and the city’s spirits, Martin must decode the secrets of those around him and find a way to survive.
This haunting and beautiful novel creates a vision of a future world that you will not be able to forget.
