    Early in this often-violent animal fantasy, a fox lunches on wild vole: "Harry . . . snapped the spines of the adults one at a time, then, holding the babies by the tails, he bit off their heads." Such behavior normally signals a villain, but here, the ethical lines are less predictably drawn. Harry wears clothes, speaks, and lives in an organized society, as does Quentin, a sentient rabbit who has defected from his oppressive city-state. Intelligent rabbits are unimaginable to Harry, as odd as if "a bunch of grapes . . . stood up on one's plate and said good morning," and a paradigm shift awaits as the characters' paths converge; a horrific crime ring provides the plot's more immediate hook. Quentin's characterization is less sure than Harry's, and the world building feels shaky, especially concerning the time frame for the rabbits' evolution. But Zuckerman writes with a polish that shows off her long experience as a children's-book editor, interpreting classic elements drawn from Robert Adams' influential Watership Down (1972) in a way that feels unexpectedly fresh.
