WELCOME TO LONDON BUT NOT AS YOU KNOW IT Oxford Street burned for three weeks. The British Museum is occupied by ragtag survivors. The Regent's Park camps have been bombed. The Nazareth Act has come into force. If you can't produce your identity card, you don't exist. Lalla, sixteen, has grown up sheltered from the new reality by her visionary father, Michael Paul. But now the chaos has reached their doorstep. Michael has promised to save them. His escape route is a ship big enough to save five hundred people. But only the worthy will be chosen. Once on board, as day follows identical day, Lalla's unease grows. Where are they going? What does her father really want? WHAT IS THE PRICE OF SALVATION?

Reviews

A beautiful futuristic fable with huge power to haunt and disturb -- M. R. Carey, author of The Girl with All the Gifts The Ship is tense, engaging and emotionally charged: I devoured this novel -- Helen Dunmore An outstanding read from a strikingly original new talent. The Ship takes us on a luxury voyage into the future with a chosen elite - but the passengers don't know where they're going, and there's a dissenter on board. A brilliant, disturbing book that makes you question everything about the way we live now. -- Maggie Gee It's haunted me since I finished it. RICHARD EYRE 'A hugely gripping depiction of a future world, The Ship is all the more chilling for its sense of authenticity. Honeywell has written a story that will make you question the value we place on love and freedom and what we'd be willing to sacrifice for those precious commodities ourselves. I couldn't put it down' -- Kerry Hudson, author of Thirst A disturbing story from a bright new talent -- Salley Vickers Addictive and thought-provoking ELLE
