Here is the stunning conclusion to an epic trilogy that Children’s Literature calls “a thought-provoking sci fi adventure with universal appeal.” The worlds that Adrian McKinty’s characters inhabit are vividly real.

In this final and most ambitious book in a wonderfully inventive trilogy, veteran interplanetary travelers Jamie and Ramsay must protect their alien friend Wishaway, now living with them on Earth, from the scrutiny of sinister forces on their own planet. In the meantime, Wishaway’s beloved home planet of Altair seems to be hurtling toward doom. Just when circumstances on both worlds are at their most dire, members of the ancient race who built the mysterious lighthouses return to offer Jamie a terrible choice: he can save Earth or Altair, but not both. The fate of two planets is in the hands of the teenage Lord Ui Neill. Which home will he save, his own or Wishaway’s?

    " This third book by far was my favorite. I think it took me 3 books to warm up and fall in love with the characters, I am happy I finally did. And it was still full of surprises and kept my curiosity going and I enjoyed the ending thoroughly! I am glad I read this series. "

    " Ties up the story nicely, then tosses a curveball of major proportions for the underlying explanation of the whole series in a few chapters. Whumpf! Book 3. Read these books, who knows when or if they'll make the well deserved movies. BBC miniseries maybe? Please! "

    " Okay, this book would have been much better if the author hadn't chosen the Mayan end date for his catastrophe. So silly, especially with the team of CIA psychics and assassians. The rest of the book was as good as the two earlier books, even if the end was very Dues Ex Machina. "
