Commandeering Dyson’s Drop—the location of the Dyson jump gates, which can transport travellers to any point in the galaxy—is part of Black’s plan. There are also a set of coordinates to be found, and for the galaxy’s sake let’s hope Black doesn’t get to them first. Thankfully he has competition—and the tenacious terrier Anneke Longshadow snapping at his heels.
Collins has artfully woven a deceptively simple, yet emotionally complex tale of vengeance told through alternating chapters from Black and Longshadow’s viewpoints. Black is anything but an evil cliché hungry for power as one might expect.I found myself liking him as much as I loathed him, and I still can’t pinpoint exactly why that is. Perhaps it’s that he is so utterly alone, and despite his obvious cunning and intelligence, still very much a child.
Anneke Longshadow is everything Black isn’t, yet paradoxically she understands him the way no one else can. Equally matched in brains and skill their fight is an eternal one. The contrast and similarities between these two is why this story works so well.
Although set in the distant future, this is a classic and timeless story that will appeal to teens and adults alike. The pace is relentless, the attention to detail spot on and the stakes couldn’t be higher.
Jenny Mounfield is the author of three novels and a number of short stories for young people and adults. She lives with her family in north of Brisbane Queensland.
