9780091953058: Osiris: The Osiris Project (Osiris Project 1)

Nobody leaves Osiris.

Adelaide Rechnov

Wealthy socialite and granddaughter of the Architect, she spends her time in pointless luxury, rebelling against her family in a series of jaded social extravagances and scandals until her twin brother disappears in mysterious circumstances.

Vikram Bai

He lives in the Western Quarter, home to the poor descendants of storm refugees and effectively quarantined from the wealthy elite. His people live with cold and starvation, but the coming brutal winter promises civil unrest, and a return to the riots of previous years.

As tensions rise in the city, can Adelaide and Vikram bridge the divide at the heart of Osiris before conspiracies bring them to the edge of disaster?

Review:

"an assured and accomplished debut novel ... an absolute gem" ( Interzone)

"A fantastic blend of worldbuilding, excellent storytelling and complex characters." (John DeNardo SF Signal)

"Swift’s first novel, with its brilliant near-future vision of an ecologically and socially devastated world and characters who resonate with life and passion, marks her as an author to watch." (Jackie Cassada Library Journal)

"A glittering first novel: a kind of flooded Gormenghast treated with the alienated polish of DeLillo's Cosmopolis. The result is a gripping novel, readable, beautiful, politically engaged and wholly accomplished. Swift is a ridiculously talented writer." ( Adam Roberts)

"Dystopia is back ... it's the characters, and what their lives show us of the fascinating, stratified world of Osiris, that are the heart of this promising debut novel" (Nic Clarke SFX)

Book Description:

A high concept, futuristic dystopian thriller for the 21st Century.
