Bestselling author Deborah Abela brings us a new heroine to love and a great deal of danger to overcome in this thrilling novel set in a post-apocalyptic, flooded world.
Description of book
Grimsdon is in ruins. Three years ago a massive wave broke its barriers and the sea flooded this grand city. Most were saved, others were lost and some were left behind.
Isabella Charm and her best friend Griffin live with three other children in the top of an opulent mansion. They've survived with the help of Griffin's brilliant inventions, Isabella's survival skills and their vow to look after each other.
But what will happen when a thrill-seeking newcomer arrives in his flying machine? When bounty hunters attempt to capture them? When Byron P. Sneddon, the self-appointed protector of the flooded harbour, demands obedience?
What if the danger is even greater? Something they can't see coming - something below the floodwaters?
'GRIMSDON is a novel which refuses to be categorised. It is part dystopian science fiction, part fantasy and part adventure - and altogether delightful … It is a rollicking adventure with heaps of good fights with pirates, attractive and memorable characters, unexpected twists and mysteries. Highly recommended.' MAGPIES
'Wow. The world that Deb Abela has created here is amazing - a flooded city where kids are left to fend for themselves against unscrupulous adults and the threat of sea monsters. I loved every minute of this book - the lovely, strong, cheeky characters, the settings, the mysteries waiting to be unraveled.' Holly Harper, GOODREADS
'A new Deborah Abela novel is always something to be excited about and this one does not disappoint … I really enjoyed Grimsdon-an adventure story that does not stray into the world of magical fantasy has become a rarity … I would be happy to recommend this book to any reader, regardless of gender, in the nine-to-12 age group.' Amelia Vahtrick, AUSTRALIAN BOOKSELLER AND PUBLISHER
'GRIMSDON is an enjoyable and gripping adventure and I recommend it for readers 9 and up.' Oliver Phommavanh, BUZZ WORDS
'Deborah Abela gives the reader a super-paced adventure mystery, set in an abandoned city where water keeps the protagonists captive … Recommended for mid- to upper-primary readers.' Claire Saxby, AUSSIEREVIEWS.COM
