The Lamb Will Slaughter the Lion by Margaret Killjoy
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is an odd little book. I think your enjoyment of it will depend on if you can relate to its collectivist anarchist mindset, as that is the worldview espoused by the characters (and the author, apparently). Power is a running theme in this story: who gets it, who takes it, and whether it should be taken at all. There are also some cool zombified demon animals, led by a three-antlered deer who delights in ripping out both human and animal hearts. This is one of Tor.com's series of novellas, a lesser one unfortunately, but I don't regret buying it.
