Terry is on the run, having escaped from prison and killed its overseer. He and his friend Ludo need to find a way to get to the northern border. That's where Ludo's wife is being held, but time is of the essence. If they don't hurry, she'll be sacrificed to the gods as part of some barbaric ceremony. With an army at their heels and a continent to cross, Terry and Ludo will need all the help they can get.
Meanwhile, Mei Curie has opened a portal to another world...and it isn't what she expected. There are worms the size of cars, animals with bulletproof hides, and an advanced alien race unlike anything mankind has ever witnessed.
Not to worry, though. Johnathan Finn has just the ticket: a rifle stocked with bullets, ready to deal with whatever threats come knocking. Along with his team of soldiers, John is here for a single purpose - to find his missing friend and bring him home - but in a world as strange as this one, a simple search and rescue mission could prove deadly.

This series just keeps getting better
This book had me close to tears and also flinching from the action scenes. Chaney has stepped up his game in this third installment in the series. The depth of the characters continues to increase, creating a stronger emotional tie for the reader. And I dare say that the writing is even more poetic. Here's my favorite part below. It makes a beautiful commentary on our history and currently reality our own world.
"No one wins (with war) in the end," he said simply. "Even after the bodies are stacked, and the dust is settled and the rubble cleared...even when you've wiped it all away, you've still got blood on your hands, and half the world's still dead...and then it comes again."
A great book!
