Tom Huddleston is an author, musician and film journalist based in Stoke Newington, East London. He was raised in North Yorkshire where his first novel, 2013's future-medieval fantasy The Waking World, was set. He's since written three instalments in the official Star Wars: Adventures in Wild Space saga and is currently working on a series entitled Warhammer Adventures for Games Workshop. His interests include pizza, outdoor swimming, chewy sweets and watching far too many movies.
Set in a flooded future world, Tom Huddleston’s book is a thrilling adventure, in which two young people are caught up in a world of pirates, gangsters, power struggles and corruption. Kara and Joe live in a floating slum on the edge of what is left of London after rising seas have drowned our civilisation. They’ve always been told that the Mariners, gangs who live entirely at sea, are terrorists. But then Joe’s life is saved by a Mariner, who entrusts him with a secret map. It’s a story that poses questions about our future, individual responsibility and the morals of political activism. Timely, thought-provoking, and action-packed.
The sequel to FloodWorld, this equally cinematic book tells the story of Kara and Joe's adventures in the US, as they travel with a band of ideological outlaws, hell-bent on destroying the Mariners and stealing their world. Can the kids come up with a plan to stop the seemingly inevitable destruction?
FloodWorld is a gripping, action-packed story for 10+ readers. Kara and Joe spend their days navigating the perilous waterways of a sunken city, scratching out a living in the ruins. But when they come into possession of a mysterious map, they find themselves in a world of trouble. Suddenly everyone's after them: gangsters, cops and ruthless Mariner pirates in their hi-tech submarines. The two children must find a way to fight back before Floodworld's walls come tumbling down... With cover illustration by Manuel Sumberac.
