The year is 2067. The city of Rosewater is chaotic, vibrant and full of life - some of it extra-terrestrial.

The charismatic mayor, Jack Jacques, has declared Rosewater a free state, independent to Nigeria. But the city's alien dome is dying. Government forces await its demise, ready to destroy Rosewater's independence before it has even begun.

And in the city's quiet suburbs, a woman wakes with no memory of who she is - with memories belonging to something much older and much more alien.

As strange, vivid and intricate as the alien biosphere at its heart, Rosewater is a fabulous book and Tade Thompson is a writer of enormous heart and talent. Just brilliant
Dave Hutchinson

A fiercely weird, breathtaking biopunk tale of alien invasion, Rosewater is ambitious and smart and very, very cool
Tasha Suri, author of EMPIRE OF SAND

Mesmerising. There are echoes of Neuromancer and Arrival in here, but this astonishing debut is beholden to no-one
M. R. Carey, author of THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS

Smart. Gripping. Fabulous!
Ann Leckie

Rosewater asks you uncomfortable questions about what is right, what is wrong, what you'll tolerate, and what is human
Mike Brooks

A magnificent tour de force, skilfully written and full of original and disturbing ideas
Adrian Tchaikovsky, author of CHILDREN OF TIME

You've never been anywhere like Rosewater. And you've never seen an alien invasion like this. Tade Thompson will take you someplace incredible, full of unforgettable characters and deep insight. Rosewater cements his place as one of our boldest and most exciting new writers
