Years have passed since hostile creatures flew down from the sky and forced humanity to fight or flee. Now, the surviving humans live in underwater cocoons, knowing that the world above does not belong to them anymore.
Marla Hightower is just getting by with a job she loathes in a cocoon, longing for something more fulfilling after a rough start to life. But things change as she begins to develop unusual abilities not unlike the winged creatures who invaded her world.
Knowing that being discovered will result in her being experimented on and placed in confinement, Marla plans to escape from the cocoon and launch up to the surface, beginning her dangerous journey to uncover not only her origins, but those of humanity's enemies.

"Vevin Song was an utterly captivating dystopian novel full of violent action packed sequences, an untrusting found family that has to learn to work together and some complex, yet mesmerising worldbuilding...[the book] was truly something special."
- Kris, A Fictional Escapist
"This is an incredibly exciting and promising debut novel that completely absorbed me from page one. Highly recommend this one if you are looking for a fast-paced sci-fantasy with compelling characters, alien invasion, culture clashes, other worlds, found family, pulse-pounding action, brutal betrayals, mental health exploration, queer love and lots of emotional gut punches. I had a blast!"
- Esmay Rosalyne, jamreads.com
"This story was told incredibly well, with detail and care and love."
- Kate, The Literary Apothecary
"The plot was unique, imaginative, and unpredictable. There are plenty of twists that I didn't see coming, and plenty of turns to keep me moving through the pages."
- Claire, @clairescurrentlyreading
