A dog with a coat like the night sky and a scent like starlight. The hiss of strange whispers from the water. Scales rising beneath her skin.
When Dorothea ‘Tea’ Gray joins the Land Service and is sent to work on a remote farm during World War II, she wasn’t thinking beyond filling the empty shoes left by her twin brother, Robbie, who is fighting on the other side of the world.
But Tea finds more than hard work and hot sun in the dusty North Otago nowhere—she finds a magic inside herself she never could have imagined, a way to save her brother in a distant land she never thought she could reach, and a love she never knew existed.
No Man’s Land is a queer shapeshifter historical fantasy and love story set in a hidden chapter of New Zealand’s past.
