This is book #3 in this series, in the previous book at the end Terry died and became a god. But these books, among many other things, are about time travel, and Terry keeps trying to get back to his (often pregnant) wife Jodenny. Not that she’s pregnant often, but she does seem to be pregnant for most of the book, even though we also see her as a schoolgirl, a young cadet, a very old woman, and especially in 1855 in Australia where the book ends. I was up until a 3:45 reading this book; it’s that unputdownable. (If that's not a real word it should be!) The time travel is accomplished through Australian Aboriginal myth, making this book unique in science fiction, as far as I know.
