The Lovereading4Kids comment
A dramatic climax to The New Policeman Trilogy.
The time is the end of the 21st century and climate change has wiped out a whole country leaving it unable to support its pitiful population. Those who are left are enslaved by the wealthy war lords. There are problems too in Tir na n'Og where refugees are flooding into through weak borders. The King of the Fairies is determined to find out why. Now old, JJ Liddy must go on a journey back across time and find out what his successors are up to. But can he remember the complicated trick he needs to do to make it happen? A typically thoughtful ending to a highly inventive and lyrically written series.
An almost dead cert for being shortlisted for the various major children’s book awards so watch this space.
