About: Trapped underground in the Svalbard Seed Vault, Mavin Cedarstrom is rescued by a band of strange women dressed in furs. The Peregrine scout Simone Kita was sent to recover seeds from the top of the world and bring them south to the floating gardens of Kashphera. Conjuring myth and magic, this fun, action-packed novel is a delight. River’s Child is a wild ride into an ancient future.

“River’s Child is the best summer read since the Rig Veda.” Fasten your seat belt as our spirited heroes ride icebergs from the frozen north, battle wild men, and fall in love while they race to prevent world war. “Seiler presents a strange and ingenious mix that is part The Road, part Dune. . . This book delivers an inventive and eerie future.” —Kirkus Reviews
