Earth's sun is gone, and the planet is on the verge of collapse. Deyv, of the Turtle Tribe, has lost his Soul Egg to the Yawtl. He sets off in search of the thief with others in the same predicament. They end up in company of Shemibob, an ageless being from another star, whose inhabitants hope to help humans escape to a new universe. Rebecca Rogers suffuses her narration with an undercurrent of foreboding that becomes a bit monotonous. When there’s true danger, the intensity is too familiar to have the desired effect. A slight modulation of tone for the narration of more ordinary events would reserve the air of tension for events that warrant heightened suspense.
