Release Date: June 12th, 2018
Summary from Goodreads: 2036 was the year that the ocean goddess Tiamat woke up and unleashed her wrath.Daily tsunamis.
Sharks the size of merchant vessels.
Humans survive by cluttering into mountaintop settlements. Cut off from natural resources, they only have one hope for survival.
The tsunami riders.
Risks high and survival rates low, we ride at the peak of a mountain of water at five hundred miles an hour and love it. The rag-tag crew of the Ištar and I never miss a wave or lose a shipment container.
But the ocean isn’t the only bitch we have to contend with.
Admiral Parker wants to monopolize the trade routes with her state-of-the-art schooners, and she’s not opposed to taking out riders who won’t yield the wave. If she wins, all of the settlements in North America will live or starve at her say so.
We’re not going to let that happen.
Surf’s up, and as all tsunami riders know: you got to catch the wave or die.
Review: I'm always excited to share with you another book by an author that I'm excited about. This book is part of the Empire of Shadow and Ash anthology. Rita Stradling has come out with another wonderful story. Who rides Tsunamis? That's just cray, but that is exactly what the characters in this book do. There is more to it than that thought, we follow a love triangle and a deep unrest among the settlements as the world succumbs to the ocean. A thrilling dystopian that will keep you on the seat of your pants. I read this book in one sitting, cover to cover. Great read.
