In this trilogy conclusion, heroes of multiple worlds must bring the fight to the Mimics.
Titan Astraea, Zephyr, and company want to venture to Tremenz, the Mimics’ home world, to rescue their abducted friends and the other captives but are too busy defending Xanadu from the attacking Mimics and Shadow Titans. When they finally get a chance to strategize, Jupiter insists they focus on reclaiming Titus before moving to attack Tremenz. Pegasus joins Astraea, Zephyr, and their friends in disagreeing and in going on a secret mission to Zomos, with the goal of tricking giant, dangerous snake Lergo into the Solar Stream, sending it to Tremenz to eat Mimics. Meanwhile, captive human Jake’s forced to witness (and undergo) cruel, torturous experiments by the Mimics before he and his snake friend, Nesso, manage to liberate themselves, other captive snakes, and the young Titan snake charmer, Angitia (Jake nicknames her Angie). They manage to locate one of the prison camps and plan a liberation but also find a badly wounded Mimic—a newly hatched queen sentenced to die for her peaceful nature—whom Jake names and insists on saving. Constant action makes for a fast-paced read as Mimic mythos is unveiled to raise the stakes, lending this volume the most weight of the trilogy, and the heroes round out their arcs about overcoming differences. Human characters read as White.
A big, flashy, and—most importantly—fun finale.
