Anglo - DB Daglish


This is the first book I have read in the D.B. Daglish body of post-apocalyptic novels. Because I live in England, the premise and landscape of Anglo peaked my interest and I decided to dive in. Daglish did a great job developing and layering the characters, who are struggling to survive in a post-apocalyptic world against the Djinn. In Anglo, the Djinn are actually Muslim extremists, which may prove uncomfortable for readers who have a hard time with language and references that aren't politically correct. Although, if I'm totally honest, if you have issues with things that run off-color you're reading the wrong genre anyways.

The story itself was wholly engrossing and the plight of the Rangers builds into a thoroughly exhilarating climax. Anglo really shines in the evident research that went into the story, with emphasis on real-life survival and situations that are not only believable, but authentic to the setting. I felt this also to be true in the dialogue, which was convincing and realistic. Overall, Anglo is an exceptional read and I highly recommend it.
