Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a time like the present, in a world that may or may not be our own, three young people-Ginny, Jack, and Daniel-dream of a decadent, doomed city of the distant future: the Kalpa. But more than dreams link these three: They are fate-shifters, born with the ability to skip across the surface of the fifth dimension, inhabiting alternate versions of themselves. And each guards an object whose origin and purpose are unknown: gnarled, stony artifacts called sum-runners that persist unchanged through all versions of time.

Hunted by others with similar powers who seek the sum-runners on behalf of a terrifying, goddess-like entity known as the Chalk Princess, Ginny, Jack, and Daniel are drawn into an all but hopeless mission to rescue the future-and complete the greatest achievement in human history.

Synopsis:

Award-winning author Bear is one of science fiction's most accomplished writers. Bold scientific speculation, riveting plots, and a fierce humanism are reflected in this mind-bendingly epic novel that may well be his masterpiece.
