Shah, London

Entry updated 29 October 2021. Tagged: Author.

(?   -    ) UK author whose moderately distant Near Future Young Adult Light the Abyss sequence, beginning with The Light at the Bottom of the World (2019), is set in a 2099 London completely immersed by the rising oceans (see Climate Change; Under the Sea). The young protagonist, instead of competing in the London Submersible Marathon, must look for her missing father through the subaqueous terrors and joys of the uncannily preserved underwater City, while coping with a quasi-Dystopian government obsessively attempting to use sound-bites to control its citizens.
