In book two of The Simpleton trilogy, the story of Cuddy Perkins continues. He's no longer the same mocked, often tormented, Woodbury, Tennessee village idiot. In fact, he's quite brilliant, trading his simple, country town existence for a life spent amongst the stars-voyaging on the spacecraft Evermore. Cuddy's life mission? Help an alien race, called the Pashier, and the being called Tow---the alien who'd changed his life so dramatically only weeks before. Supported by his brother, Kyle-also Tony and Brian, and his childhood best friend, Jackie-the team of five must find a way to combat the vicious Howsh before Primara is annihilated. Undertaking one last-ditch mission, the team must uncover certain hidden truths concerning both the Pashier and the Howsh-two races far more connected than previously known. The answers they seek can only be found in the distant past-in the ancient vaults of Calirah. To venture there, they will go up against vile savage beasts, treachery, and a fleet of alien warships that might be unstoppable. Not everyone in the group will survive. Emotionally and physically spent, en route to their next Interstellar destination, someone new will need their help-someone both vulnerable and powerful.
