The Pan of Hamgee is not a natural knight in shining armour. Yet he has escaped from police custody in K’Barth, switched realities and foiled Lord Vernon’s attempt to kidnap Ruth, the Chosen One from the Festival Hall. Pretty good, he thinks.
However, Ruth thinks otherwise. Being pursued by Lord Vernon is bad enough. Now, thanks to The Pan, she’s on the run. They are both alive, of course, but with Lord Vernon on their tail neither of them can be sure how long for.
To save her life The Pan must introduce Ruth, the woman of his dreams, to the person prophesied to be the man of hers. And he knows he must do it fast. Before Lord Vernon finds her. But the gentleman in question is in hiding and no-one knows where. Can The Pan find him? And if he does, can he bring himself to unite them?
This book is written in British English.

I am giving this book a 4 star rating. This is the second episode in a series and could be read as a standalone but you will be confused if you do. It begins right where Book One ended and also ends in a cliffhanger Book Two still revolves around a character called The Pan of Hamgee. He lives on K'Barth which is a parallel Earth but with a different version of reality. He travelled to a different reality where he has saved Ruth, The Chosen, from being kidnapped by Lord Vernon. This book switches between "this Earth" (as I've come to think of it since it contains familiar landmarks from London) and K'Barth. Join The Pan, Ruth, her roommate Lucy, Big Merv, and a host of other characters from Book 1 as they continue to try to stay ahead of Lord Vernon and his plan for world domination. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the rest of the series.
