Narrator Prentice Onayemi has an opportunity to capture a variety of characters and situations, and he is up to the task. Descriptions of hallucinogenic-drug-induced sex between a crab and a dolphin and a demigod's thirst for human blood border on the surreal. The story is set in 2064 in South Africa. Short chapters from the main characters' points of view soon begin to lay out the plot. Onayemi uses strong accents for his characters but weaves the story's moods with subtlety. His presentation of the sentient robots can become a little tedious when they're speaking code, but his flat voice in those sections contrasts appropriately with his otherwise engaging delivery.
