When the Rains Come

(2024)
A novel by

 
 
In a world ravaged by climate change, twins Matty and Terra cling to survival in Shore-Home, a dwindling fishing community on England’s south coast. With society thrown back into a brutal, burned-out iron age by rising seas and relentless heat, the twins rely on their wits and unbreakable bond to endure the relentless trials of their shattered world.

Terra is no ordinary survivor—she’s a Wavetalker, with the rare ability to commune with Gaia, the living essence of nature. Her gift for predicting weather and fish migrations makes her Shore-Home's greatest hope. But when the ruthless Children of Gaia storm their settlement, kidnapping Terra and a number of other villagers, Matty's life is torn apart.

Determined to find Terra, Matty sets out on a daring rescue mission across a desolate landscape fraught with danger. Braving parched lands and mistrustful communities, Matty encounters life-or-death situations at every turn.

During the journey, Matty discovers both untapped powers and an ancient prophecy linked to Gaia and the shattering of the world—a prophecy that may be tied to the twins in ways neither had imagined. In this unforgiving world, Matty must face impossible choices and unimaginable sacrifices to save Terra and, if the prophecy is true, the world.
