Waterspinner is the sequel to Bird Binder, set in a post-ecocatastrophe world ruled by all-knowing machines.
After a crisis on the remote lighthouse island where the resistance group was based, their leader, Saz, ends up on the other side of the ocean. While searching for a friend, he travels through a devastated land where water resources are evaporating.
In the midst of refugee floods and cities buried in sand, Saz has to choose which future he wants to fight for.
“Helena Waris’s dense novel is like a lighthouse in the mist… Waris utilizes effectively the tension of an enclosed space.” – Keskisuomalainen on Bird Binder
