London is in ruins, a once highly advanced city now a gated wasteland. Within its walls, a bloody war rages between two clans. Hope is sparse, but the people believe the gods have risen from the dead.
Odin himself has come to play a part in the lives of two twins, a brother and sister from the Volson clan. Siggy and Signy must come to grips with their destiny as London's future teeters on the edge of a knife....
"A dystopian vision that will rank with the twentieth-century classics!" --"The Sunday Telegraph" "Straddling a dystopian future and a myth-ridden past, "Bloodtide "is a savage story of betrayal, passion, hatred, and the corrupting nature of power. "Bloodtide "shies from nothing, making it both cruel and magnificent." --"The Guardian" "A magnificent drama." --"The Sunday Observer" "Powerfully conceived, "Bloodtide "is a novel of bristling intrigue. In sharp, confident prose Burgess imagines a startling world of humans and shapeshifters, predators and prisoners, villains and heroes. It's a fierce adventure that forces your attention and refuses to let go." --Adele Griffin, author of "Sons of Liberty," a National Book Award finalist
