“All I did was ask you for a role-playing game. You never warned me I’d be pitched into it for real! And I asked you for hobbits on a Grail quest, and not one hobbit have I seen!”

Hexwood Farm is a bit like human memory; it doesn’t reveal its secrets in chronological order. Consequently, whenever Ann enters Hexwood, she cannot guarantee on always ending up in the same place or even the same time.

Hexwood Farm is full of machines that should not be tampered with – and when one is, the aftershock is felt throughout the universe. Only Hume, Ann and Mordion can prevent an apocalypse in their struggle with the deadly Reigners – or are they too being altered by the whims of Hexwood?

A complex blend of science fiction and all sorts of fantasy – including fantasy football!!

Review:

“…Her hallmarks include laugh-aloud humour, plenty of magic and imaginative array of alternate worlds. Yet, at the same time, a great seriousness is present in all of her novels, a sense of urgency that links Jones’s most outrageous plots to her readers’ hopes and fears…”
Publishers Weekly

From the Back Cover:

"All I did was ask you for a role-playing game. You never warned me I'd be pitched into it for real! And I asked you for Hobbits on a grail quest, and not one Hobbit have I seen!"

When Controller Borasus receives a strange letter from Earth he is both curious and alarmed. Someone has activated an ancient machine – and is using it for most trivial purposes! Surely no one would dare to tamper with Reigner seals in this way? Yet the effects of such interference should resonate throughout the universe, so he decides to go to Hexwood Farm to investigate…

On Hexwood Estate, Ann watches the mysterious comings and goings with interest. Hexwood is like human memory; it doesn't reveal its secrets in chronological order. Consequently, whenever Ann enters Hexwood, she cannot guarantee on ending up in the same place or even the same time. She knows something deadly is going on – or is Hexwood simply altering her too?
