Jasper has returned to his roots, well actually Thursday's root. This book comes back to Swindon and concerns the Park-Laine-Next family. Thursday is suffering from the mindworm making her to remember her non-existent daughter Jenny, which really suffering from the injuries sustained in the previous book. With time travel no longer possible Friday has been told his new future is one of incarceration having shot and killed Gavin Watkins and Tuesday is trying to deliver the Anti-Smote shield before the Deity smites Swindon.
Will Thursday manage to prove herself mad enough to become the head of So-27?
The answers to these question and many more appear at the end of convoluted and very exciting story threads woven expertly by Jasper. The story is told at a fast pace and there is always a good reason not to put the book down and read another chapter. Before you know it you are at the end of the book, satisfied with the outcome but still wanting more.
