In the fall of 2012, scientists at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland, embarked on a series of high-energy experiments. No one knows exactly what went wrong, but in the blink of an eye, thousands of possible universes all condensed into a single reality....
Between a desert and a dried up sea lies the town of Watering Hole, the only oasis for miles and the home of our intrepid heroes Shaani and Xoota. After some rather harrowing adventures in the desert, they are followed home by a swarm of empathic earwigs. As if a psychic bug infestation weren't enough, the town's water supply has suddenly died up. Where there was once fresh water to spare, there is only a trickle of brackish sludge. Theorizing that the water came from a source beyond the desert, Shaani proposes an expedition to re-establish the town's water supply. Xoota, of course, is voted to go with her. Crossing the desert has never been done - and with water in short supply, the task seems impossible. But the ever-helpful Shanni appeals to the town patron Benek, and his love of cryogenically frozen brides, to back the project. What follows is the adventure of a thousand lifetimes.

Rats and rodents where the rubber hits the road.
When, tongue in cheek, the main character's name the intelligent plant, Russel.
When the land shark gets attacked by the razorback pigs. The troupe losses it's water in the attack. Stranded in the desert with water gone the group gets blown off course only to end up in more danger when they crash their land sail into an oasis.
No I found coming bask to it after a few hours a good stint in the post apocalyptic world.
This is a romp with gamma irradiated rodents that have lots of character. It shows just how animalistic humans can be and how human evolved rodents, bugs and plants can be.
Wigwig is a real treat!
Worth the read.
