Constructed over two generations, consuming extraordinary amounts of money and lives, Otherland has begun to claim Earth's most valuable resource: its children. Now, in River of Blue Fire, the group of unlikely heroes who have taken up the challenge of this perilous and seductive realm are brought together briefly, only to be thrown into different worlds, split by mistrust, and stalked at every turn by the serial killer Dread and the mysterious Nemesis.
