A brilliant, post-apocalyptic romp of a book that manages to ask big questions about the nature of humanity. Moody delivers plenty of blood and guts, but its the ideas that really pack a punch. A book that thrills on every level. (Doug Johnstone THE BIG ISSUE
As with Hater, Moody deals with larger themes - notably here, how far will a parent defend the indefensible actions of their child? - within the tropes of a post-apocalyptic novel, elevating it above the multitude of such books currently on the shelves. The final part of the trilogy can't come soon enough. Another bleak and powerfully uncomfortable journey for the reader." (TOTAL SCI FI
What it does redefine is just how utterly ruthless and downright vile one human being can be to another on the written page. Moody knows only too well that when a line is drawn between life and death people will do whatever they can to stay on the right side of that line. The results are displayed in a language that is all the more brutal for its simplicity. Moody tells it like it is, the scale and nature of his apocalypse deserves no less. A worthy successor to 'Hater' (GRAEME'S FANTASY BOOK REVIEW
