Submerged is a story about “love, loss, and denial”, this modern homage to Greek mythology inspired by Vita Ayala’s (The Wilds, Wonder Woman, Batman Beyond, Supergirl) experience of Hurricane Sandy is set in the (creepy) NYC subway system and is sure to grab readers.
On the night of the biggest storm in New York City history, Elysia Puente gets a call from her estranged little brother Angel, terrified, begging for help. When the call cuts out suddenly, despite the bad feelings between them, Ellie rushes into the night. Finding his broken phone in front of a barricaded subway station, Ellie follows echoes of her brother into the sinister darkness of the underground, desperate to find him before it’s too late.
For fans of dark fantasy realism, Submerged is a tale of modern Orpheus set in the underworld of the NYC subway system.
