When players in a theatre show lure Daniel and his friends, fellow soldiers, into a surreal otherworld they find themselves trapped on an apocalyptic path. A pirate ship waits to ferry some of them to the end of the world, helmed by Death. Already broken by war, these men are now the world's only hope in the greatest battle of all.

This is the story of Daniel Cole and it is a strange tale indeed, told in the most fascinating and surreal manner that conjures up images bringing to mind Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, Dali and Leonora Carrington. Cate Gardner's skill in her use of language to paint fantastic mind pictures is best appreciated (in my opinion) if you simply let your mind go wherever the story leads, rather like the ferry in the story. It is a fantasy and a dark apocalyptic tale that demands more than one reading.
