"You thought you could walk right into Az-ca, take over where you left off centuries ago, and everybody would just fall in with your plans. Is that it?"

"I didn't count on her—never saw her in all my divinations."

He meant Sherra. An unseeable. He'd divined Thorn II, just not his Queen and partner. "So. You wanted to take over after practically destroying their current King—who was a very good King, and before that, an excellent Commander of the army. That's a hell of a way to get Az-ca's population to adore you, isn't it?"

"I can offer them peace," he began.

"Except you can't. Kaakos is still alive, remember, and he'll be coming for you—of that I have no doubt. You know it, too, and you can't take him on without Az-ca's army at your back."

"I thought we could work together—Thorn II and I. That he'd see the reason in it after a while."

"And, as he's currently powerless, what choice would he have?" I sniped.


* * * 


The present King of Az-ca has been rendered powerless through an unsuspected coup, and is overcome with despair.

Kaakos has escaped death, but is forced to leave Ny-nes. Now, his sole focus is revenge.

Az-ca's citizens have fallen victim to the enemy's lies, and civil war threatens to split the country.

Sherra is forced to divide her attention between searching for the enemy, dealing with traitors and struggling with the King's misery and desolation. When the blood spell that rendered Kerok powerless takes a turn even its maker didn't expect, only her dreamwalker, with help from another, can hope to turn the tide...

Travis Crichton and Jacey Roden's weekend orienteering contest in a vintage Mark 4 Jaguar car becomes a journey through a belt of fog and into a strange village called The Valley that is not shown on any map. The store and people there appear to be living in the 1950s, a time when the car was new. Jacey realises that this is more than random misfortune and that they are caught up in something more sinister.

Back home through the fog, the authorities are interested in the Jaguar and it is no coincidence that an elderly Susan, a retired professor called Kevin and a second vintage Jaguar are involved. A ruthless enemy attacks one car and their only escape is to return to The Valley in the other car where their adventures begin.

Seen mainly through Travis's eyes, Jacey and the others try to find the truth but become more involved in the time space continuum. Life identities from the future are involved, as is an organisation called Sago comprising of solids, androids, gaseous and organic intelligent species. Sago is using her family to prove or otherwise that humans are an inferior life species who revert to barbarism when under pressure. This test is but one to show that androids have superseded humans as the superior solid life identity.

In this task, the Roden family are but the pieces in an intergalactic chess game with the umpires seemingly neutral but in reality either for or against the human family becoming unified. How can one play by the rules when the umpires are biased?

Worse still; Jacey and Travis do not even know why it is happening, who is helping and who is hindering their efforts to find out the truth.

After all access back home is broken, a journey through strange realms with links with other humans from both the past and their future, hold the key. Are the vintage Jaguar cars the catalyst to this random journey through the cosmos or is it Jacey herself? Only by embracing the fog will they discover more about their lives, both in the past, present and future.
