In Genesis, the much-anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed Oasis, Quincy Emerson finds herself captured, brutalised and returned once more to captivity, this time as a serious security risk.

Escape, they say, is impossible. But there’s a storm brewing in the city, and Quincy has nothing left to lose...
