2040: The Long Earth is in Chaos.
The catacysmic Yellowstone eruption is shutting down civilisation. Whole populations flee to the relative sfety of myriad stepwise Earths. Sally Linsay, Joshua Valienté and Lobsang have all been involved in the perilous post-eruption clean-up.
But Joshua faces a crisis closer to home. From a long childhood hidden deep in the Long Earth, a new breed of yopung, super-bright post-humans is emerging - but 'normal' human society, driven by ignorance and fear, is turning against them. Fotr Joshua, caught up in the conflict, a dramatic showdown seems inevitable.
Meanwhile US Navy Commander Maggie Kauffman embarks on an incredible journey, leading an airship expedition to the unexplored limits of the far Long Earth.
And Sally is contacted by her long-vanished father, Willis Linsay - inventor of the original Stepper device. Ever the maverick, he is planning a fantastic voyage of his own - across the Long Mars. But what is his true motivation?
For Joshua, for mankind, for the Long Earth itself - everything is different now.
