If you grew up reading Brian Jacques’ Redwall series (like I did), but have graduated to bloodier literary pastures (also like me), then Daniel Polansky’s The Builders is a gory-romp of a tale you won’t want to miss. Corey Gagne—whose voice Tor.com listeners will recognize from his work on Matt Wallace’s Sin du Jour novella, Envy of Angels—tackles the cast of rats, stoats, mice, and other woodland creatures with the right combination of grit and flair.
Listen to an excerpt of Daniel Polansky’s The Builders, read by Corey Gagne:
The Builders is available now in paperback, ebook, and audio formats from Tor.com! From the catalog copy:
A missing eye.
A broken wing.
A stolen country.
The last job didn’t end well.
Years go by, and scars fade, but memories only fester. For the animals of the Captain’s company, survival has meant keeping a low profile, building a new life, and trying to forget the war they lost. But now the Captain’s whiskers are twitching at the idea of evening the score.
