PART II Fifteen-year-old Sigurd, son of King Sigmund, is the last surviving member of the Volson clan. His father's kingdom -- the former city of London -- is gone. And his father's knife, a gift from Odin himself, has been shattered to dust. Now, Odin's eye is upon him. Armed with a powerful sword forged from the remnants of his father's knife, Sigurd will face death, fire, and torment. He must travel through Hel and back...to unite his country once again.

Review quote

"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

Reviewed by Randstostipher "tallnlankyrn" Nguyen for TeensReadToo.com

In this post-apocalyptic world, war and corruption thrive, as the innocent people who occupy it must adapt. England has been torn apart and two families, Niberlin and Portland, are still worrisome toward one another, even though there is a truce intact. The answer to saving this chaotic world lies with one person, the "chosen one," "the hero," - Sigurd, son of King Sigmund. The only surviving Volson, Sigurd's only chance in reuniting this torn country is by doing one simple thing...slay a dragon. Simple? Not so much. Throw in three lovely lady distractions, resurrections, technologically-based animals and humans who aren't so human (including a human-turned-dragon) and a protagonist who is part lion, and it's all a little complicated. On the surface, BLOODSONG looks like the normal adventure based on the heroic cycle, where the main character goes on a journey to accomplish one thing, slay the nemesis. However, in this case it's a technologically advanced dragon. BLOODSONG begins a generation after BLOODTIDE. But nothing is different from the first time period. There is still blood, war, and love. With those elements, Melvin Burgess creates a complex world that is so imaginative and advanced that it feels like you are in an action-packed video game. And when you finish, you just have to sit back and say WHOA!show more
