Reviews

"The searing, often brutal story of a mother's terrifying quest to find her missing daughter in a post-apocalyptic world. Haunting and shocking. --Liv Constantine, Bestselling author of The Last Mrs. Parrish
"An undeniable, brilliantly written tale of trauma and grief. In a world under water, Myra not only learns how to survive--and all the nitty-gritties that entails while sailing over what used to be North America amid raiders, scoundrels, predators, and worse--but she must also learn to trust herself and the others on her journey. We do the same along with her. Myra is one of the most memorable heroines we've met in years, and After the Flood a story about the pursuit of redemption you will want to come back to again and again."--Theodore Wheeler, author of Kings of Broken Things
"A soaring, brilliantly imagined novel about love and desperation, set in an astonishing new world that still feels utterly gripping and contemporary. Kassandra Montag is a visionary new talent!"--Karin Slaughter, International bestselling author of The Last Widow
"A promising debut...an intriguing and innovative woman-centered swashbuckling quest narrative, centers on the social impact of climate change a little over a century from now.--Publishers Weekly
"Spellbinding and aching at every turn, After the Flood is an evocative tale of despair and fierce hope existing within a shattered future. Kassandra Montag weaves together a watery, post-apocalyptic world that will leave readers breathless."--Lydia Kang, author of A Beautiful Poison
"In Montag's thrilling debut, a woman reluctantly joins forces with the crew of a ship large enough to ferry her toward the one thing she wants. As in the very best adventure novels, Myra and the crew of the Sedna are beset by troubles, both those they stumble across and more pressingly, those of their own making. If the center of this novel is one mother's quest to recover the daughter stolen from her, the heart of it is the truth that, as unrecognizable as the world may become, what is most human in us--our loves, our fears, our strengths, and our failings--can be neither drowned nor outrun"--Liz Kay, author of Monsters: A Love Story
"Debut novelist Montag manages to marry page-turning drama and emotional depth, vividly imagining a world where society rebuilds itself from scratch and history repeats."--Kirkus
"Montag's thrilling debut takes place in a future climate-change-altered world overrun by water... Anchored by a complicated, compelling heroine, this gripping, speculative, high-seas adventure is impossible to put down."--Booklist (starred review)
"Gripping... An adventure rife with great peril and high emotional stakes, this postapocalyptic novel reads like a fast-paced screenplay: intense, visceral, and relentless."--Library Journal
