Rival gangs in post-apocalyptic London attempt to reach peace through marriage, but treachery and war prevail. Colin Moody performs this first installment in a series, capturing all the rage and horror of the complicated plot. Each chapter is told in the voice of one of the story's many characters, or in third-person subjective, and Moody shifts effortlessly between them, even to the point of varying his characterizations when one character's words are quoted by another. Moody shines as the half-dog-half-man resistance leader, Dagmar, giving him a man's speech, through a dog's panting and sniffing, making a bizarre character utterly believable. While the book stops in the middle of the story, the performance stands on its own. R.L.L. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
