Taste of Marrow

(2017)
(The second book in the River of Teeth series)
A novel by

 
 
A few months ago, Winslow Houndstooth put together the damnedest crew of outlaws, assassins, cons, and saboteurs on either side of the Harriet for a history-changing caper. Together, they conspired to blow the dam that choked the Mississippi and funnel the hordes of feral hippos contained within downriver to finally give America back its greatest waterway.

Songs are sung of their exploits, many with a haunting refrain: "And not a soul escaped alive."

In the aftermath of the Harriet catastrophe, that crew has scattered to the winds. Some hunt the missing lovers they refuse to believe have died. Others band together to protect a precious infant and a peaceful future. All of them struggle with who they've become after a long life of theft, murder, deception, and general disinterest in the strictures of the law.

Genre: Science Fiction

Praise for this book

"This hippopotamus epic is just as preposterously fun as you could possibly have hoped -- but it's also a brave, clever alternate history." - Charlie Jane Anders
