Published by Victor Gollancz Science Fiction on February 18, 2010
  
Neth Space Review Rating: 70
It's violent, witty, foul-mouthed, and unpleasant -- and depending on one's perception, it's either perfect or horribly wrong.

Neth Space Review Rating: 85
... it's a story of loss, it's an apocalyptic, action-packed thriller, it's magical, it's squidpunk, it's all a bad joke...and it's simply an example of a master at work.
