9780091953089: Cataveiro: The Osiris Project

A boat is shipwrecked on Patagonian shores, and rumors abound that it has come from the lost city’ Osiris, believed to have been destroyed over 50 years ago. The implications are wide-reaching and acutely political, for in the eyes of the world Osiris is only a collection of fables.

Pilot and cartographer Ramona, recently returned to the island of Tierra del Fuego, has a broken plane, and the only person who can fix it for her is the Antarctican, Taeo, a political exile desperate to find a way back home.
Glimpsing an opportunity for redemption, Taeo discovers there is one survivor of the shipwreck: the sole proof that Osiris exists. He and Ramona find themselves caught up in a perilous conflict of interests over the secret of the sea city, a secret which will have severe repercussions on their lives, their homes, and their loved ones.

About the Author:

E. J. Swift is an English writer of speculative fiction. Her short fiction has been published in Interzone magazine and anthologies The Best British Fiction 2013 and Pandemonium: The Lowest Heaven. Her debut novel OSIRIS is published by Night Shade Books and Del Rey UK, and is the first in a trilogy: THE OSIRIS PROJECT.

Review:

"Swift has produced another beautifully-written novel." -- Civilian Reader "Cataveiro has a soulful, lonely quality as Taeo and Ramona embark on their missions, haunted by memories of the past and visions of what lies ahead ... an intriguing world to get lost in." SciFi Now "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
