Taya and Lorkrin are Myunans – shape-changers who can sculpt their flesh like modelling clay. They accidentally release Shessil Groach, a timid botanist working in captivity on the top-secret Harvest Tide Project. A massive manhunt is launched by the sinister Noranian Empire, which will stop at nothing to protect its Project.With the help of a scent-seller, a barbarian mapmaker and their uncle Emos, the teenagers and Groach keep one step ahead of the Noranians, while they try to find a way to sabotage the Harvest Tide Project and avert the disaster it will unleash.

'One of those rare gems that are perfect for every age group.'

Evening Echo

'Depicts .. The world of Braskia, where shape-changing teenage heroes get embroiled in a variets of adventures. The substantial plot involves a number of strands, and there's a crucial science fiction dimension. Its humour will appeal to boy readers particularly.'

The Sunday Independent
Celia Keenan - The Sunday Independent

'some wonderfully weird secondary characters.'

The Irish Times

'I would definitely recommend this book to other readers, as it is a spectacular tale, full of adventure and magic. Because of its fast-moving plot and straightforward style, I think this book is suitable for 10 to 15 year olds.

Evening Echo
Mark Treacy, 16 - Evening Echo

'Original, exciting and richly imaginative, a refreshing departure from the beaten track of mainstream fantasy'

Publishing News

'An action-packed series of entrapments and escapes, successes and setbacks ... populated by a seemingly endless cast of divertingly weird creatures.'

Books for Keeps

An immensely accomplished and completely original fast-paced action fantasy. This is a story you hope will never end.

Pat Boran and Siobhán Parkinson

Unexplained death and secret projects; kidnapping, murder and conspiracy. It all sounds a lot like the X-Files, but this is not Washington DC, but a fantasy world where the sea is formed not of water, but of a heavy, suffocating gas. An involving little fantasy in a world of monsters, diesel engines and shapeshifters. If the writing does not attain the heady heights, it is of a standard with JK Rowling and the story and setting are original and intriguing. The shapeshifting abilities of the central characters are truly unique; instead of merely changing form, the Myunan actually sculpt their flesh using tools.
The Harvest Tide Project is an entertaining fantasy for the Harry Potter set. It is a very different kind of fantasy novel, but pitched for the same age range and reading ability.
