Publisher's summary

Thirty-five billion people from throughout Earth's history were resurrected along the great and winding waterways of Riverworld. Most began life anew—accepting without question the sustenance provided by their mysterious benefactors. But a rebellious handful burned to confront the unseen masters who controlled their fate—and these few launched an invasion that would ultimately yield the mind-boggling truth.

Now, Riverworld's omnipotent leaders have been confronted, and the renegades of Riverworld—led by the intrepid Sir Richard Francis Burton—control the fantastic mechanism that once ruled them. But the most awesome challenge lies ahead. For in the vast corridors and secret rooms of the tower stronghold, an unknown enemy watches and waits to usurp the usurpers....

Almost better than the first

Book five turns some well accepted theories about why the inhabitants are on Riverworld completely inside out. Everything you thought was true will be revised based on the final truth revealed in book 5. Probably my favorite in the series after book 1.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
