This is volume 2 of Peter David's "Hidden Earth" trilogy. I loved the first novel and had to wait four years to read the second one. This one held to my expectations.
The Damned World has been conquered by the Twelve Races (if you have not read vol. 1 I recommend that you stop reading here and go to Hidden Earth: Darkness of the Light), but a single female of the Mort (humans) desperately tries to make a difference. She has been abducted by the Travelers in behalf of the mysterious Overseer. Meanwhile the Ocular have gone extinct, the last of their children have been taken care among all by a Piri... - Confused? - Oh yes, you will be. But its worth the effort! Read this, and you will be entertained in spades.
One more great novel by Peter David, writer of stuff, known for his Star Trek New Frontier series, his King Arthur and Sir Apropos novels and for scripting Marvel Comics like Hulk and X-Factor. Recommended for lovers of qualitiy SF-Fantasy crossovers.
