Publisher Review

"A rich and brilliant novel about the connectedness of humanity in itself and with its world: beautifully written and compellingly drawn, layering history, present day and the future with brilliancy and power. It's a novel about the climate crisis, but it's a naturalist's novel too, with some wonderfully, vividly observed writing about sealife from coral to sharks and seahorses. Just marvellous.";Adam Roberts, author of The This and The Thing Itself;"A beautifully crafted love letter to our endangered coral reefs. E. J. Swift confirms her reputation for writing elegant, heartfelt and compelling eco-fiction.";Anne Charnock, Arthur C. Clarke Award-winning author of Dreams Before the Start of Time and Bridge 108;"Beautifully realised, vivid versions of past, present and future combine in The Coral Bones to powerful effect. It gave me much to think about. I won't forget it.";Aliya Whiteley, author of Skyward Inn and The Loosening Skin;"E. J. Swift pulls no punches in this beautiful and terrifying yet boldly hopeful novel. The wonder of the Great Barrier Reef is laid out for us via a vivid multi-dimensional tour through the lenses of past, present and future.";Vicki Jarrett, author of Always North;"A thoughtful, immersive, very human story that speaks to current fears and hopes for our world.";The Guardian
