** spoiler alert ** And this is where it all comes together. Literally. Hard to believe there's still four books left after this once you realize where it's headed, but thank goodness, there's still four left.


2016 reread: If you think the Doctor and Rose had the market cornered on seperated-by-time-and-space-angst, you'll appreciate this book. Alec Checkerfield, the latest rendition of Nicholas Harpole and Edward Alton Bell-Fairfax, comes into himself. He and his AI counterpart, Captain Morgan, finally learn some of the terrible secrets of Dr. Zeus Incorporated. A twist of fate (or something else?) pulls Alec from his time in 2351 directly onto Mendoza's doorstep where she has been imprisoned in 150,000 BC. She knows there's one thing he has left to do, even though he fully doesn't realize the implications of their meeting, and he goes straight off into infamy, just like Zeus planned along. Afterwards, when he truly learns he was a pawn, a fated Judas all this time, Alec goes after Zeus with a vengeance. But first, he goes back to gather Mendoza, only find that once again, again, AGAIN Zeus had one more knife left to stick in his back. And she's gone.
