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....
Melvin Burgess has produced a body of work that is both challenging and thrilling, including the seminal teen drug and love novels Smack and Doing It. His books have been adapted for film, stage, and television.
