Astra Fairweather finds herself sublimated by Time ... the Time Aspect of Amedia, one of the three distinct minds of the Amedian sentience, her master. Astra in the Avatar — the personal representative, the "puppet" — of Time, one of three such Avatars. Except, one of the Avatars, Forturian Stormcloud, is dead; and a second, Banterell Lightningbolt, has gone mad. All of which leaves Astra as the sole remaining Avatar ... as Amedia's Ambassador or Emissary to humanity ... at fourteen years of age.
Just as things begin to fall apart.
Time undertakes to rebuild Amedian history by moving Astra through time and space: from the landing of the first human colonists to reach the World, five thousand years before, right up to the final day of the current World, with her friends at the very end. It is Astra's job to fix the World ... to make things as they should be once more ... so that Amedia can end the current, broken World and restart things as they should be.
WARNING: Some parts of Summer Redux will make more sense if you've read all four of the preceeding novels, The Summer Apprentice, The Fall of Magic, The Winter Chill, and The Spring of Storms.
