Cataveiro

by E. J. Swift
Release date: February 19, 2014
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction

A boat is shipwrecked on Patagonian shores, and rumors abound that it has come from ‘the lost city’ Osiris, believed to have been destroyed over 50 years ago. The implications are wide-reaching and acutely political, for in the eyes of the world Osiris is only a collection of fables.

Pilot and cartographer Ramona, recently returned to the island of Tierra del Fuego, has a broken plane, and the only person who can fix it for her is the Antarctican, Taeo, a political exile desperate to find a way back home.

Glimpsing an opportunity for redemption, Taeo discovers there is one survivor of the shipwreck: the sole proof that Osiris exists. He and Ramona find themselves caught up in a perilous conflict of interests over the secret of the sea city, a secret which will have severe repercussions on their lives, their homes, and their loved ones.

The second book of the Osiris Project by E. J. Swift explodes the previously narrow setting of the first book into a widescreen panorama. She paints the remains of the post-climate change, post-scarcity world in stark, bloody colors. Cataveiro is a futuristic political thriller that straddles oceans and continents.
