Rosewater is a town on the edge. A community formed around the edges of a mysterious alien biodome, its residents comprise the hopeful, the hungry and the helpless - people eager for a glimpse inside the dome or a taste of its rumoured healing powers.

Kaaro is a government agent with a criminal past. He has seen inside the biodome, and doesn't care to again - but when something begins killing off others like himself, Kaaro must defy his masters to search for an answer, facing his dark history and coming to a realisation about a horrifying future.

Praise for Rosewater: Winner of the Nommo Award for Best Novel

  • A magnificent tour de force, skilfully written and full of original and disturbing ideas

  • Smart. Gripping. Fabulous!

  • Mesmerising. There are echoes of Neuromancer and Arrival in here, but this astonishing debut is beholden to no-one

  • A fiercely weird, breathtaking biopunk tale of alien invasion, Rosewater is ambitious and smart and very, very cool

  • One of the most imaginative alien invasion scenarios I have come across
