 In this exhilarating companion to Printz Award winner and National Book Award finalist Ship Breaker, Paolo Bacigalupi brilliantly captures a dark future America that has devolved into unending civil wars, driven by demagogues who recruit children to become soulless killing machines. Two refugees of these wars, Mahlia and Mouse, are known as "war maggots": survivors who have barely managed to escape the unspeakable violence plaguing the war-torn lands of the Drowned Cities. But their fragile safety is threatened when they discover a wounded half-man--a bioengineered war beast named Tool, who is hunted by a vengeful band of soldiers. When tragedy strikes, Mahlia is faced with an impossible decision: risk everything to save the boy who once saved her, or flee to her own safety. Drawing upon the brutal truths of current events, The Drowned Cities is a powerful story of loyalty, survival, and heart-pounding adventure.

I love LOVED "Ship Breaker," so naturally, I am really excited about this companion novel. Seriously though, if you're into dystopia, I cannot recommend "Ship Breaker" enough.

  1. Wow. I've never heard of Ship Breaker or Drowned Cities until now, but they both sound fabulous! I really love dystopian novels, so I will definitely check these out. Thanks for the heads up :-)
