Water has taken over the world and there are only a few places left to live; City, a floating town built from metal and plastic, New Eden, a piece of land where people can still eat from their crops and the Wastelands. Liberty lives in City, she's the daughter of the only doctor. The people call him Dr. Miracle. Because of the fact that everything flooded they needed to think of a solution to get to the food that went under with the houses and buildings. Dr. Miracle came up with one. He invented a way to give people gills so they can breathe under water.

The nautilus men can salvage food, medicine and every other object they can find. Only the men who live on City can become nautilus men and they have to get a license before the operation can take place. Liberty, or Libby for short, has assisted her father in these procedures many times, so she knows what to do. Libby always has been a good and loyal daughter. She is pragmatic and analytical, maybe even a bit cold. When a reamer named Casimo turns up on their doorstep it is the beginning of trouble.

Libby's father once made a promise to an old friend and he is determined to keep it. He performs an operation on Casimo to make him a nautilus man. This is against the law since Casimo is not a citizen of City and he also doesn't have a license. When things go bad Libby and Casimo only have one option, l they have to eave City and go to New Eden. Out on the open sea Libby learns about why City, New Eden and the Wastelands always go against each other. Who is telling the truth? Who can be trusted? Libby must find out fast because the tides are rising again.

Libby is a young girl. She is seventeen and an important citizen of City. Libby is clever and she has learned a lot about the medical world from her father.

Set in a post-apocalyptic world where the oceans have risen and drowned most of the land, this is a great YA book. The main character, Libby is clever and unflappable when things go wrong. I liked that she was acerbic and a little awkward in social situations, but completely calm and capable when dealing with medical crises. Cosimo, the hero, is very likable too. Their relationship makes the transition from distrust to friendly bickering to love.

The settings for the story - the floating city, the farmlands on what little land that is left and the Wastes are all very well thought out. Especially the Wastes - I loved the description of the huge cliffs made out of plastic waste.

An interesting and entertaining read. It's so nice to see a strong and capable YA heroine too!

I was given this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
I Couldn't put this book down and it was 1am when I finally finished. Written for consumption by the teenage / young adult readers, I assume, this story could easily have been transformed into a mature adult age group. Exciting and fascinating the storyline never lets up and is continuously intriguing. The characters are a bit twee but that's the way the dialogue has been used. A realistic post apocalyptic world is envisaged by the author and is a complete novelty to me with its setting. A full story in itself it leaves wide open the possibility to further this story into another book . Well done Katy I was most impressed.? Very highly recommended .

I enjoy a good fantasy novel and I love YA romance, so this was the perfect book for me. I've started a few books recently that I haven't finished because although they seemed like they should be great but really they weren't. It was so lovely to find this one that is! Well written, totally believable alternative world, great characters - an excellent read.

Wow, what a world Katy Haye has created this time! Minutely thought out and horribly believable, the City, Waste and New Eden are the only areas left in a drowned earth. But instead of working together, the people are divided.

Good, fast-paced action, wonderfully acerbic wit. Enjoyable, realistic heroine.

This is a great YA read with one of the most interesting concepts I’ve come across in a long time. The world is mostly under water and humans have had to adapt. They survive, mostly thanks to the heroine’s father, a doctor whose invention has saved them all. The heroine, Libby, is his apprentice, becoming a doctor in her own right, which stands her in good stead. But due to unforeseen circumstances she’s suddenly thrown together with Cosimo, a boy she doesn’t trust, and if they want to survive they have to co-operate. Can they learn to get along or will it all end in disaster? Read this wonderful story to find out!
