Bloodtide Summary


Bloodtide by Melvin Burgess

Set in the future as two rival gangs, the Volsons and the Connors, struggle to control London. The city is almost cut off from the rest of the country and surrounded by the Halfman Lands - a desolate area populated by creatures, Halfmen, the results of genetic experiments to create living killing machines. Val Volson dreams of uniting the two factions by giving his 14-year-old daughter, Signy, as a bride to the rival ganglord, Connor. A shocking betrayal almost wipes out the Volsons - only Signy and her twin brother, Siggy, survive. The fate of both gangs, and of London, is in their hands, but both must pay a terrible price for power.

Bloodtide 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
