Mystic City

Publisher: Corgi Children's

In the far future, mankind is paying the price for global warming. A semi-submerged Manhattan is powered by mystical energy harvested from an enslaved sub-culture, forced to live in poverty and squalor.

When Aria Rose, a privileged young woman from one of the city’s two most powerful families, awakes from an accidental overdose to find she has no memories of her handsome fiancé, but is strangely moved by a dangerous revolutionary, her determination to get to the truth opens a Pandora’s box that changes the course of her life forever.

This gripping novel is a powerful, sensual story of forbidden love fighting to survive in the face of corruption, cruelty, deception and political intrigue.
