“With Beneath the Rising, Mohamed combines a coming-of-age story with a heavy dose of the Weird, with thrills and humor along for the ride.”
Joanna “Johnny” Chamber is smart, from an affluent white family.
Nick Prasad is brown, poor, and secretly madly in love with Johnny.
Johnny creates a special kind of reactor that could change the world by eliminating fossil fuels, and inadvertently awakens the Ancient Ones, who are dead set on ending humanity as we know it.
Now, from the ruins of Nineveh in Upper Mesopotamia to the oldest library in the world, Nick and Johnny are on the run, hunted by forces beyond their control, and have to learn to trust one another to survive.
Why we’re excited about this book:
Premee Mohamed may be a new name to many horror readers, but she’s been releasing regular content since 2015 with her story in the She Walks in Shadows anthology. She is the author of The Apple-Tree Throne and numerous short-stories online and in print. With Beneath the Rising, Mohamed combines a coming-of-age story with a heavy dose of the Weird, with thrills and humor along for the ride. Chuck Wendig (Wanderers) calls Beneath the Rising a “A wonderful genre-defying adventure, rife with strange heart and weird horror. But most notable is its particular, careful attention to its characters. Premee Mohamed is a bold new voice.”
Releasing 3 March 2020 from Solaris, Beneath the Rising by Premee Mohamed is available for pre-order now.
