From the Publisher:
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, abrother and sister from the Volson clan. Siggy and Signy must come togrips with their destiny as London's future teeters on the edge of aknife....
"While some episodes and images resemble Wagnerian opera redone as a graphic novel, Burgess has interests deeper than being merely lurid/outrageous....BLOODTIDE has its moments of wild excess....but I'm willing to wait and see what lies ahead for the inhabitants of Burgess's rough, beleaguered, darkly fascinating city." - Faren Miller 12/2001
