Lovejoy's World is a sinister place, the approach to which is described by Dai Alanye in convincing detail. But from the beginning the tone is ominous. Here criminals are deported but who is the criminal and who the law-abiding? A world with few comforts and little to eat, one nevertheless feels the inhabitants will do anything for money.It's a joyless place, a frontier to the utterly unknown. At times it seems Wally and Kiera are out only contact with normality and clarity, the only ones we can trust.
Strange animals and insects abound - unicorns without horns; ponies which are in fact centaurs - human-eating half men with spears. This is no airy-fairy fantasy, however, but down-to-earth scariness. Lovejoy's World offers futuristic space travel back in time to a terrifying age which the reader hopes will never be. Thrilling and thought-provoking.
