Larry Barnes has a remarkable and dangerous power: he can create his own portal through the multiverse. Now he must choose between returning to Earth or saving Terra—and the girl he loves—and discovering his true home.
In this epic coming-of-age sequel to TERRA, Earth-born Larry Barnes discovers his ability to move through the mulitverse via a portal of his own creation. A powerful and dangerous ability, Larry seeks the council of a priest named Affron, who has the same ability. But when Larry discovers Affron has disappeared from Terra, he risks following him to Elysium, leaving his friend Palta behind.
Palta, meanwhile, joins the rebellion against the new rulers of Terra, who turn out to be cruel and greedy tyrants while all the time longing for Larry to return to her.
In pursuing Affron, Larry arrives in a world called Elysium, a refuge for others with the same power, which for many of them has been a mixed blessing. Years have passed, he is a young man now, misses Palta, and knows his family on Earth must think him long dead.
Larry makes a courageous and risky decision to return to Terra, to rejoin Palta, to fight to return the priests to power and undo the damage of the past. Risking his life for Terra and for Palta, Larry struggles to answer a lifelong question: Where is home?
