After the Flood is set in a post-apocalyptic world, where cities lie in watery graves, the swells of water consume the land. Where the land still exists, people have to fight for their survival.
The main character Myra is on an unrelenting mission. She is hell bent on finding her missing daughter, the one her husband took from her. After encountering a shady character, who mentioned a girl in a colony in the North, who sounds like her missing daughter. Myra will do whatever it takes to get there, stealing, deceiving and even killing if she has to.
One of the issues Myra faces is trusting strangers. Because she has another daughter, Pearl, who she needs to protect. Knowing she cannot go on this journey alone; Myra joins a ship with people who all have their own stories to tell. Can she trust them? You’ll have to read to find out.
This is Kassandra Montag’s debut book, and can I say, what an incredible debut it is. I feel like the book may be a premonition to things to come. Time will tell.
Hello, my name is Kristina and I'm from the South West of England. I have been a passionate reader from the very get-go. As a child, I would snuggle up and read all things Roald Dahl. Especially James and the Giant Peach, that was a particular favourite of mine. I think I've read that a hundred times by now. Yes, I am a re-reader. As an adult, my passion for reading has grown, and because of this myself and a group of friends lovingly known as the Boozy Book Lovers (BBL for short) set up a book club because we all shared one thing in common and that was a love for books. Since then, I have wanted to engage with more people, so I think the time has come where I would like to share my thoughts with even more like-minded people, and so here I am!
I particularly love reading YA Fantasy, Sci Fi and sometimes a contemporary. You'll also find me reading old school classics like Lord of the Rings or Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials.
I hope you enjoy my blog, if you have any questions, please feel free to ask. I also share my love for books on my Instagram page @kristinas_shelves. Feel free to add me, I am always looking for new bookish people to follow.
