'Loved THE FOREVER SEA. Loved it. Sheer joy' Joanne M Harris, author of Chocolat and The Gospel of Loki

Sing.

A story of hope and adventure, of loss and sacrifice, of the blue-sky surface world far above, where ships sail upon the endless grasses, a story of the Forever Sea, a story of you and I…

Every story has its beginning and this one starts when a young sailor, Kindred Greyreach, hearthfire keeper and sailor aboard The Errant, receives some devastating news. Her grandmother―The Marchess, legendary captain and hearthfire keeper―has stepped from her vessel and disappeared into the Forever Sea. But the note she leaves Kindred suggests this was not an act of suicide. Something waits in the depths, and the Marchess has set out to find it.

To follow in her grandmother's footsteps, Kindred will embroil herself in conflicts bigger than she could imagine: a water war; a mythic pirate city where monsters lurk; battles against beasts of the deep, driven to the brink of madness; and the elusive promise of a world below the grasses.

Of all this, and much more, sing, memory.

THE FOREVER SEA is a story about the beauty and threat of nature and the relationship between finite natural resources and infinite greed. It’s about leaving behind everything that is familiar and plunging into the terrifying unknown.


I can rarely remember being this excited for a debut novel" Mary Robinette Kowal, Hugo- and Nebula Award winning author

"Calls to mind Ursula K. Le Guin’s Earthsea series" Publishers Weekly

Loved THE FOREVER SEA. Loved it. Sheer joy - Joanne M Harris, author of Chocolat and The Gospel of Loki

What an amazing world from the ecosystem, to the ships that ply the deep grass sea, to the magic and people within! - Fran Wilde, two-time Nebula-winning author of Riverland and Updraft

I can rarely remember being this excited for a debut novel. This was everything I wanted it to be. Wind-swept prairie seas, pirates, magic, and found families - Mary Robinette Kowal, Hugo and Nebula Award winning author

Beautifully lyrical and imaginative, Johnson's debut sings a twisting tale of adventure full of diverse characters and a lush world ripe to fall in love with. With a heart that will haunt you, this ecopunk story is unlike any you've seen before - Linden Lewis, author THE FIRST SISTER

Richly imagined and beautifully written, with a highly original and very creepy magic system The Forever Sea is wonderful - R. F. Kuang, Astounding Award-winning author of THE POPPY WAR

A captivating secondary-world eco-fantasy...calls to mind Ursula K. Le Guin's Earthsea series...a good balance of grit and tenderness - Publishers Weekly

A world covered in the vast grasses of the Forever Sea, and intrepid sailors cross the endless plains through the magical power of hearth fires stoked with the enchanted bones of former captains....In this rich and well-realized world, magic has an ecological price as well as profit, and conflicts are between equally complicated communities rather than simplistic good vs. evil. This ending of this excellent debut promises more adventures in its fragile, Miyazaki-esque world - Booklist STARRED Review

A beautifully imagined dive into the unknown - --GV Anderson
