Set in a post-cataclysmic world where the rain never stops, one teen embarks on the heist of a lifetime, diving for treasure sunk deep beneath a flooded Las Vegas, in this YA fantasy adventure debut that is perfect for fans of Fable and House of Salt and Sorrows.

In the slowly sinking city of Coconino, Arizona, the days are long, the money is tight, and the rain never stops.

For Jin Haldar, this life is nothing new—ever since her father died in a diving accident, she’s barely made ends meet for her and her younger sister, Thara.

Enter Bhili: a drifter who offers Jin and Thara the score of a lifetime—a massive stash of gold hidden in the sunken ruins of Las Vegas.

Jin knows it’s too dangerous. She stopped diving after her father’s accident. But when her sister decides to go, Jin’s left with only one choice: to go with her.

A ragtag crew is assembled—including Jin’s annoyingly hot ex-boyfriend. From there, a high-stakes heist ensues that’s beyond even Jin’s wildest fears. Crumbling ruins, sea beasts, corsairs, and a mysterious figure named João Silva all lie in wait. To survive, Jin will have to do what she promised herself she’d never do again: dive.

With a unique twist on Treasure Island, a magnetic (and somewhat reluctant) second chance romance, and a vividly imagined world, readers will find everything they could want in this thrilling and cinematic heist tale—where the reward is great, but the risks even greater.
