The Rosewater Redemption

The Rosewater Redemption

Life in the newly independent city state of Rosewater isn’t everything its citizens were expecting . . .

Mayor Jacques finds that debts incurred during the insurrection are coming back to haunt him.
Nigeria isn’t willing to let Rosewater go without a fight . . .
And among the city’s alien inhabitants, a group has emerged who murder humans to provide bodies for their takeover . . .

Operating across spacetime, the xenosphere and international borders, it is up to a small group of hackers and criminals to prevent the extraterrestrial advance. The fugitive known as Bicycle Girl, Kaaro and his old handler Femi, may be humanity’s last line of defence.

The Rosewater Redemption is the powerful conclusion to Tade Thompson’s award-winning Wormwood trilogy.

Reviews

As strange, vivid and intricate as the alien biosphere at its heart, Rosewater is a fabulous book and Tade Thompson is a writer of enormous heart and talent. Just brilliant
Dave Hutchinson
A fiercely weird, breathtaking biopunk tale of alien invasion, Rosewater is ambitious and smart and very, very cool
Tasha Suri, author of EMPIRE OF SAND
Mesmerising. There are echoes of Neuromancer and Arrival in here, but this astonishing debut is beholden to no-one
M. R. Carey, author of THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS
Smart. Gripping. Fabulous!
Ann Leckie
Rosewater asks you uncomfortable questions about what is right, what is wrong, what you'll tolerate, and what is human
Mike Brooks
A magnificent tour de force, skilfully written and full of original and disturbing ideas
Adrian Tchaikovsky, author of CHILDREN OF TIME
You've never been anywhere like Rosewater. And you've never seen an alien invasion like this. Tade Thompson will take you someplace incredible, full of unforgettable characters and deep insight. Rosewater cements his place as one of our boldest and most exciting new writers

In addition to providing a gritty and intricately plotted science fiction mystery, Thompson's opening of the Wormwood Trilogy considers what it means to be human
