In this, the second book of the Fiddleback Trilogy, the war of Dark Lords against humanity expands. Rajani, the daughter of an ET, struggles across a ruined Earth to destroy the Dark Lord Fiddleback.
Fiddleback's former puppet, Tycho Caine, assumes the identity of Coyote and takes on his mission: protecting humanity from the creature that created him. Caine's mission leads him to a Tibetan monastery, where the dimension-walking monks help him discover his true nature.
One of Coyote's aides, Sinclair MacNeal, travels to Tokyo to find the enclave of assassins where Fiddleback forged Caine in a very deadly weapon.
Where these three paths converge, Dark Lords class, and reality bends like heated wax.
