Sunker's Deep

The Icebreaker Trilogy (Volume 2)

Lian Tanner

Square Fish


Action, adventure, and mystery surround the Sunkers, a band of children who live in a submarine, as they try to survive a war in Sunker's Deep, Book Two of the Icebreaker Trilogy by Lian Tanner.

Sharkey is a Sunker—he was born on a fortunate tide, and everyone in the giant submersible Rampart knows it. The trouble is his life is based on a lie. He's been a fake hero for years, but when tragedy strikes, he must become a real one. And he has no idea how to go about it.

Meanwhile, on land, Petrel, Fin, and the crew of the Oyster are on a mission to bring lost knowledge back into the world, a mission they have no idea how to carry out.

Non-stop action against a magical backdrop; this is a wonderful world to get lost in.”Catherine Jinks, author of the Evil Genius trilogy

Praise for Sunker's Deep

"...Tanner skillfully weaves the three plotlines together in a tense narrative that not only explores the characters’ often conflicting motives but keeps pages turning... Suspenseful and thought provoking, this offering stresses the importance of education and knowledge as weapons against fear and tyranny. Fans will relish this return adventure."School Library Journal, starred review
