Time travel, tunnels with slimy things hiding in the dark, desert wastelands with giant bleached bones, and then a land populated by creatures that have evolved to be the new rulers of Earth - where was the kitchen sink?

This is Greig Becks first foray into fiction/fantasy, and I'm glad to see he hasn't totally ignored all the things that make his books fun - some frightening elements, the humor, and the big action and adventure. The world Beck creates is one of wonder - from tiny vampire worms, to the giant forests, and also to the clues as to what happened to mankind and how the new `beings' evolved.

Arnold 'Arn' Singer is pulled into a black hole and hurtled into the future. The moon is closer now, and its light imbues him with the strength he needs to survive in a world that is deadly and beautiful. Two mighty races have evolved who are locked in an eternal war.

I loved the ruthless Colonel Marion Briggs who sends through some kick-ass Green Berets to bring Arn back - no spoilers, but I'll just say, not everything goes to plan!

Beck includes one more new element in this book that I adored... a budding (unrequited?) romance between Arn and the female Valkeryn Eilif - I know its going to make me sad in the end....but fingers crossed!

I loved this book - hope the next one in the series comes soon.

I did not want this book to end but the author left it hanging at just the right time (as long as the sequel isn't too long in coming). I must admit that I was getting so used to Greig Becks earlier novels that I kept expecting Alex Hunter to appear (now that WOULD be good). Well written throughout with only a couple of minor errors that I could spot.

I really enjoyed this fantasy story. The characters were good and the plot line was engaging. It somewhat reminded me of playing games workshop and the baddies were like the Warhammer Skaven. I'm looking foreword to the second book and others to come.
