A very very strange world, but a slightly worrying one, that is to say. Somewhere in the back of my mind I imagined it could be true, or at least, that parts of it had the potential to become reality!
A terrible thing happened to the earth creating, as they very often do, the opportunity for some indivduals to grasp massive power over the downtrodden individuals of the world. Our hero is one of them, he gets a break and gets sent on a string of adventures allowing us to learn more and more about this world.
he even gets to canoodle with the daughter of the almighty! Not many of us can claim that on our CV's!
I was riveted to this read all the way though and finished it, put it down, had a drink and started the second one.
If you like Rankin and you have an imagination then you should enjoy this story. If you cant cope with the world being turned upside down and being forced to believe Rankins weirdness, I would give it a miss!
