The words "help me!" trigger an awe-inspiring jaunt through the multiverses that comprise the cosmos of Morpheus, Scanner Prime to the Queen of Korynthia in Nova Europa. Faced with the consequences of his vision of collapse, not only for his own country, but for all of the civilized universe, Morpheus must somehow find a single prisoner on one of the infinity of alternate earths among the Otherworlds. Accompanied by his faithful wherret, Scooter, and by a band of loyal cutthroats and adventurers, Morpheus prepares to embark on a quest that will whisk him from world to world.
In the final novel of the series, Morpheus must confront his greatest challenge - restoring the balance of the universe itself. Everything is gradually coming apart, and only he has the ability to renew the energy of the aether.
But before the mage can do that, he must learn how to connect with the others around him - human as well as alien - beginning with a planet called Festuca that has experienced a man-made ecological disaster that has condemned millions to a slow death by starvation. If he can't cure the microcosm, how can he possibly heal the macrocosm?
