For thousands of years Earth has suffered under the strain of supporting an ever more needy and destructive humanity who increasingly rely upon their artificial intelligences in almost every way.

At last with Earth’s carrying capacity rapidly falling, these Intelligences have taken people off earth to distant destinations in huge space fleets. However, as the last wave prepares to leave and their final countdown is completed two ships fail to take off. Now eighteen years later a handful of the People, abandoned by their Intelligences, and suffering terribly from limited resources and frightful mutations, live difficult lives around the Field where still stand the two ships that failed to save them.

Born into this world Belle and her boyfriend Adam must come up with a way to escape before they are brought to trial in front of their Sage and her Law enforcers for their law breaking. Not to do so will bring them to a horrible ending. They, as much as anyone, need to find their second chance.

A brilliantly original coming-of-age story. Perfect for readers of Sophie Mackintosh’s The Water Cure and Daisy Johnson’s Everything Under. Cala, a stone farmhouse on the edge of a village in the Outer Hebrides, is home to four women – witches the locals say – who scratch out a living on its land. But after ten years of relative harmony, fractures are beginning to appear among them. Eighteen-year-old Euna is tired of Cala’s rigid hierarchy and arbitrary rules – the women must wear plain dress, attend strict rituals and consume only what they grow or gather with their hands. Sick of scavenged seaweed and thin soup, Euna decides to go in search of a different way of living.
