In the first book in The Subtle Alchemy series, S L Moffitt weaves a world that is at once believable and alien. It is a world where the furthest advances of technology and the most ancient secrets co-exist and interact. Sea of Dreams is ‘science fiction for those who do not normally read science fiction… and for those who do.’ It is both a mystical journey of discovery and a page-turner that is impossible to put down.
Sea of Dreams is a book of beginnings,
beginnings of journeys,
beginnings of knowledge
beginnings of transformation.
And all these beginnings have their origin in a single question:
What does it mean to be ‘alive’?
This question is at the heart of Wong Anming’s journey through a future China that is prosperous and successful on the surface, yet struggling to contain both new and old forces that threaten it. Anming must accept her past, and her destiny, in order to understand the new intelligences that are accelerating the transformation of both the earth and the moon.
