Summary
National Book Award winner Pete Hautman weaves several diverging time streams into one satisfying masterwork in this stunning and revelatory series finale. In a far distant future, Tucker Feye and the inscrutable Lia find themselves atop a crumbling pyramid in an abandoned city. In present-day Hopewell, Tucker?s uncle Kosh faces armed resistance and painful memories as he attempts to help a terrorized woman named Emma, who is being held captive by a violent man. And on a train platform in 1997, a seventeen-year-old Kosh is given an instruction that will change his life, and the lives of others, forever. Tucker, Lia, and Kosh must evade the pursuit of maggot-like Timesweeps, battle Master Gheen?s cult of Lambs, all while they puzzle out the enigmatic Boggsians as they search for one another and the secrets of the diskos. Who built them? Who is destroying them? Where ? and when ? will it all end?
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Tucker is trapped atop a Romulan pyramid in the year 3,000 CE with no interdimensional disko. What, you're lost already? In this final book of the Klaatu Diskos trilogy, the multitalented Hautman a paragon of prose clarity concludes this most unclear of literary experiments. As before, it's a head-scratcher nearly impossible to follow at times, and yet and yet! so rich with fascinating ideas and unusual themes that bold readers will keep turning pages. The action this time is mostly divided between Tucker's futuristic search for ex-Pure Girl Lia and two different time planes involving Tucker's uncle, Kosh, whose relationship with Emily/Emma progresses in both 1997 and 2012. Characters echo throughout the ages, giving the book, and the series, the feel of a less linear take (if you can believe that) on Marcus Sedgwick's Midwinterblood (2013). What sticks out the most are Hautman's always deft hand at believable romance and his ability to use a sci-fi plot to generate Chariots of the Gods-style legends. Though not always fully cooked, this is one hell of a stew.--Kraus, Daniel Copyright 2014 Booklist"
