Summary from Goodreads:
City is the last civilised place left on a drowned Earth, a floating town built from metal and plastic from the Time Before. It’s the only home doctor’s daughter Libby Marchmont has ever known or wanted – until her father helps the wrong patient and she’s forced to flee.
Cosimo came to City for one reason. Then he should have vanished back to his people on the Wastes. But what about his promise to Libby’s father?
Stranded in the middle of the sea, can the two enemies learn to trust each other? And can they survive long enough to uncover the truth: City isn’t the safe haven Libby always believed it to be …

Rising Tides had me entranced from page 1, the first sentence even:
“I should have gone straight home from the market, but I heard a whisper that a race was on.”
Chills, and a serious case of need-to-know-now hit me immediately. As the story progressed, I was drawn in further by the lovely style of Katy Haye and the way her world became more and more complex right along with the characters. LIbby seems a bit spoiled at first, but you come to realize she’s just much odder than many of the other people her age in City, as they call their place of residence. Many times, in post apocalyptic water world type books, you can predict everything and there are no surprises, however, this was absolutely not the case with Rising Tides. I was several times proven wrong and surprised a great deal by the continuation of certain foreshadowed storylines. I don’t want to give much away so that you can enjoy every bit of this swirling journey of action and even a bit of romantic entanglement now and then. I’m very much looking forward to the next book and wouldn’t mind this series having a good long run!
About the Author
Katy Haye spends most of her time in imaginary worlds – her own or someone else’s. She has a fearsome green tea habit, a partiality for dark chocolate brazils and a fascination with the science of storytelling.
Your survival kit is as follows:
1. An Amazon voucher for £10/$15US/$20CAN, AUS, NZ. Load up your Kindle with books to read, while shops remain.
2. A solar charger so when the national grid fails you can still read your books.
3. A mirror. When you are stranded in the open sea you can signal for help by reflecting the sun’s light. Alternatively, if you have no wish to be rescued because you still have reading to do, flip the mirror over to depict the slogan, “Go away I’m reading.”
4. Ribbon bookmark. If all your books have been washed away by the rising seas, this can be rolled up and packed into the neck of a cut-open bottle and will double-up as a water filter. Note: this will not desalinate salt water, sorry.
5. A bag to put the last of your belongings into. DO NOT LEAVE THIS BEHIND.
