The Lamb Will Slaughter the Lion

by Margaret Killjoy (Tor, 2017)

Book cover: 'The Lamb Will Slaughter the Lion', by Margaret Killjoy

A defiant fantasy novella that champions anti-authoritarianism and independent lifestyles (specifically those of squatters and punks). Killjoy writes strong characters and an edgy utopia being brought undone through selling out and a spate of bizarro-horrific pagan killings. The ending, however, lacks cogency.
