Orphans of the Tide by Struan Murray

In the last city in the world, anyone can be the enemy……..

An extraordinary tale of myth, magic and the power of friendship, perfect for fans of Sky Song and Cogheart.

The City – mankind’s last refuge in a drowned world, where Whale Lords reign and the Inquisition keeps the peace.

The Enemy – a dark power, ever seeking to take possession of a human body and cause untold chaos.

The Inventor – a girl living in the heart of the City in a ramshackle workshop overflowing with curiosities.

When a whale washes up on the City roofs and a mysterious boy emerges from its belly, the superstitious citizens assume the Enemy has come again. Only Ellie – a fearless inventor striving to live up to her mother’s legacy – believes the boy is innocent. Thrown together with the young fugitive, now on the run from the ruthless Inquisition, Ellie must discover who this boy really is – and what that means for her own terrible secret . . .
