Reviews

"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
