When Ethan saves the life of a Firestarter, it’s nothing unusual. He’s one of only three Healers in the hospital — and that gunshot wound isn’t going to regenerate itself.
But his patient turns out to be Corinna Arden, heiress to a pharmaceutical empire controlling Britain’s water supply. Her twin, Javier, is a man who (a) starts sending Ethan flowers at work, (b) seems terrified of a secret, and (c) has the cheekbones and earnestness to make up for both.
Ethan indulges in what he thinks will be a brief and harmless romance but quickly finds himself knee-deep in a conspiracy involving murder, a drug cartel, and a bid for the multi-trillion-pound reconstruction tender: Project Earthflown.
Meanwhile, Oliver is a journalist preoccupied with a dead body he found on the end of a too-convenient tip. Oliver would also like to know what Javier Arden is doing on his couch.
Earthflown is a character-driven speculative novel exploring the water crisis, hyper-privatisation and love. Set in a London that has long abandoned the earth to the rising sea, the story takes a sicence-based approach to conventional fantasy archetypes, where futuristic medicine meets a bit of magic.
