Pitched into the deprivation of the Seaweed Slum at eight years old, Saffron lost her mother to the fever. She and her broken-hearted father bonded and they look out for each other, but he is vulnerable too, and Saffron feels threatened when new neighbour Marianne captures his heart. When he disappears on his secret missions, she worries the patrols will get him and she’ll never see him again. In 2113, Saffron turns eighteen, and she yearns to grow up and pursue her ambition to become a master herbalist.

Nate the astronomer appears in their lives and Saffron needs her independence, but will her father let her go? She resists his control, but when he and Nate are arrested she must venture into the deadly Server City to rescue the men she loves.

Read Sample

Fiona Faith Ross is an English teacher from a family of English teachers. She lives in East Devon within earshot of the Dartmouth Steam Railway. At school, they called her “The Swot” because they’d find her in the library reading the Oxford English Dictionary. Along with her interest in the written word, she’s always liked science and techy stuff. As a reader, she’ll go for science fiction and techno-thrillers and the big “Why are we here?” themes mostly, and lots of other genres too. Her interest as a writer focuses on the interaction between humans and technology, and the wonderful and scary things that could come out of it. Her first novel is entitled Far Out and it’s science fiction for teens (and grown-ups). Her second sf novel, CODED, is almost ready to go.
