“NO SLAVERS, NO RAIDERS, NO CANNIBALS, NO INFLUENCERS!”
So reads the bullet-pocked half-meter high letters at the eastern Cascadian Federation checkpoint on the border of Montanastan. In 2043, Olivia Ermine is safe no more and neither is her beloved Uncle Ernie—if the toe and ransom note written in, oh, blood are any clue. Redwood is ground zero for a galactic contest that will determine the Earth’s destiny and its place among the stars. The thrilling conclusion to the trilogy’s darkly comedic, genre-bending voyage through solarpunk sci-fi and science fantasy.
The secret’s out and the monstrous events of 1700 could ignite the planet in 2043. Will the cycle of vengeance end when the fire’s out, or when there’s nothing left to burn? It’s one minute to midnight and the danger that lurks outside Cascadia now creeps within its borders. The Labors of Restoration continue with the hunt for the elusive electric buffelvel; Olivia and her allies must get to the heart of the matter before it’s too late.
The VanDirks Corp. and their confederates will go for broke while Redwood smolders. In the meantime, Redwood’s First Cascadian community prepares for the end of all things, and a new beginning. For Olivia, girl troubles and strange bedfellows will make for strange alliances that could change everything, even on the dark side of the Moon.
