THE THIRD AND FINAL VOLUME OF THE SAGA OF THE PATHFINDERS
It's the end of the world...again.
Over the years, the Pathfinders - each the sole survivor of a humanity-destroying apocalypse, but on different alternate Earths - have become a tight-knit team as they search for an alternate they, along with the Authority, might one day call home.
Now, at last, one has been found: an Edenic alternate Earth on which humanity never evolved.
But just when their work seems over, new threats emerge. One comes from within the Authority itself, but the other is so completely unexpected that the Pathfinders are quickly overwhelmed.
The race is on to deal with the final - and greatest - threat this rag-tag band of survivors have yet encountered as they journey through alternate Earths rendered lifeless by rogue singularities or littered with ancient and perilous ruins. Faced with their own extinction, can they pull together one last time…as well as save the Authority from itself?
"This potent, teeth-gritting SF thriller shows death and love only a shadow away from our ordinary lives." —Publishers Weekly starred review of Extinction Game
"…a master of core sf" - THE GUARDIAN
"…a leading light of modern sf" - FANTASY BOOK CRITIC
