Overview

You don't go in the water. You don't touch it. If you do, it will get you, drag you down, and you're gone.

In the only world Harry has ever known, black water covers everything. Huddled in crowded island cities, human beings survive only because of the Sundered Ones: strange aliens with mind-bending powers, but very little will of their own. Everybody knows enslaving the Sundered is the only way to survive. Everybody knows claiming them also kills them, and slowly but surely, they're going extinct.

Harry has heard about the Hope of Humanity all his life - a legendary fix for this broken, drowning world - but when he claims a powerful, frighteningly intelligent Sundered named Aakesh, everything he knows about the Hope and the Sundered is shattered. Unless the Hope can truly change the world, a choice of genocides waits before him: either humanity will survive, or humanity's broken, Sundered slaves. There is no longer room for both.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon - Tahlia Newland
"All in all an excellent book that I highly recommend to anyone who likes science fiction or fantasy."
Goodreads - Leah Petersen
"There are movies you watch, works of art you see, poems and books you read that you walk away from going 'whoa.' This was one of them for me."

Meet the Author

Ruthanne Reid was raised in the woods, but fortunately her isolation was offset by regular visits to New York City. She pursued music for years before realizing she wanted to tell stories rather than sing them.

Ruthanne has lived on both US coasts (she prefers the West one), is distantly related to royalty, and has sung in a thousand-year-old cathedral. Her favorite authors tend to be dramatic (J. R. R. Tolkien, Neil Gaiman, Patrick Rothfuss), but she doesn?t see this as a bad thing.

Writing in and around Seattle, she owns dust-covered degrees in music and religion, and is generally considered dangerous around household electronics. She belongs to a husband, a housemate, and a cat, respectively.

The Sundered is her first novel.
