epic Riverworld saga in which almost all of humanity has been resurrected along the shores of a million mile long river Why have humans been given another chance at life amp who s behind it all That s what Sir Richard Francis Burton amp Sam Clemens set out to discover in two earlier novels one by riding the suicide express if you die on Riverworld you re resurrected again at a random point on the river amp the other steaming on the greatest riverboat ever seen Now Milton Firebrass Clemens s former enemy now his lieutenant is planning to use the dwindling iron supply of Riverworld to create a great airship which can fly to the North Polar Sea far more quickly than any boat can travel There he hopes to learn the secret of the mysterious tower thought to house the beings who created the planet Jill Gulbirra doesn t care as much about the mission as she wants the chance to captain the airship in all likelihood the last airship to be constructed But in landing the coveted role she faces stiff competition especially from the greatest swordsman of all Cyrano de Bergerac who turns out to be a natural pilot But even if Jill can win the command of the airship amp even if it can reach the river s headwaters there s no guarantee it can get thru the mountain wall that surrounds the tower amp it s likely that agents of the Ethicals Riverworld s creators are on board the airship plotting its downfall Worse still somewhere along the way the airship is sure to encounter the i Rex Grandissimus i the steamboat stolen by Sam s archnemesis King John Lackland Craig E Engler edited, At the end of i The Fabulous Riverboat i Sam Clemens finally set out in the great iron riverboat i Not for Hire i to reach the headwaters of the massive river on whose shores humanity has been resurrected After years on the river Clemens and his crew including the giant subhuman Joe Miller are finally near the end of their journey and only one obstacle remains the evil Earthly king John Lackland John is waiting just upriver in the i Rex Grandissimus i the first riverboat that Sam constructed and the one that John and his crew hijacked and he s hell bent on sinking Sam s boat and vice versa Complicating the battle is the fact that both ships likely contain agents of the Ethicals the group of advanced beings who created Riverworld for reasons unknown One or more of the Ethicals themselves may even be on board as are various humans that the rebel Ethical known as the Mysterious Stranger but known to Clemens simply as X enlisted in his cause which may or may not lead to humanity s salvation p The battle is set to take place along the shores populated by members of the Church of the Second Chance a group that believes they must attain ethical perfection in order to proceed to the next phase of existence The Second Chancers are not violent but their charismatic leader La Viro may attempt to sink one or both of the iron ships in order to prevent the battle Among the Second Chancers is former Nazi officer Hermann Goring who had a run in with Sir Richard Francis Burton in the first Riverworld novel i To Your Scattered Bodies Go i Burton and his companions among them several people who were contacted by the Mysterious Stranger are reluctantly serving on John s boat in order to reach the headwaters of the river But will any of the humans working for X survive the coming battle And if so how can they possibly hope to penetrate the tower in the North Sea where the Ethicals are thought to reside And what could lowly humans hope to do against a race so advanced that they can reshape entire planets and resurrect all of humanity i Craig E Engler i p
