The monsters of your past are coming…and they've brought the deep with them.
IN A FLOODED WORLD, TWO SISTERS FIGHT TO SURIVE THEMSELVES, EACH OTHER, AND THAT WHICH LURKS BENEATH THE WATER
In debut-author Tiffany Meuret's, A FLOOD OF POSIES [Black Spot Books, September 8, 2020], estranged sisters find themselves thrust together as they battle both a world-ending flood and the monsters of their pasts.
It's 2025. Sisters Doris and Thea are ten years, and seemingly worlds, apart. Doris is trying to cope with her recent physical impairment from a car accident, while Thea roams the streets in search of more heroin. When a storm of biblical proportions strikes, the wayward sisters are begrudgingly forced together. As the rain continues and the waters rise, each attempt to survive both the flood and each other while also resisting the strange pull of the monstrous, Leviathan-like creatures that have appeared to haunt the depths of the water beneath them.
One year later, Thea floats throughout a ravaged, flood-soaked world. Her former life drowned beneath metric tons of water, she and her only companion, a sour man called Robert, battle starvation, heat stroke, and the monstrous, Leviathan-like creatures that appeared beneath the water alongside the flood. When they come across what they assume to be an abandoned tugboat, Thea's journey takes a new turn, and the truth about the flood and the monsters seems more intricately linked to her past then she may realize.
Interweaving past with present, Tiffany Meuret's spellbinding debut presents a poignant juxtaposition of the monsters of our childhood and how they measure up against the unknowable mysteries of our future. A Flood of Posies is a haunting, drowning, and ultimately heartwarming thriller that pulls you along in its current as it follows two sisters who find their way back to each other when the rest of the world falls apart.
A Note From the Publisher
"Bewitching debut....this is a promising first outing from Meuret." —Publishers Weekly
"With its unforgettable imagery, Posies is a phenomenal novel set at the edge of an unforeseen apocalypse." —Foreword Reviews
"Meuret's examination is as much upon changing relationships and human endeavors as on the face of world-changing disaster....A Flood of Posies is highly recommended reading for readers of fantasy and women's literature who look for more in their world-ending and world-building studies than an action-packed survival saga alone." —Midwest Book Review
