Summary
2045-2059, it is the middle of the twenty-first century. Human society continues to evolve on Datum Earth, its battered and weary origin planet, as the spread of humanity progresses throughout the many Earths beyond. Lobsang, now an elderly and complex AI, suffers a breakdown and, disguised as a human, attempts to live a "normal" life on one of the millions of Long Earth worlds. His old friend Joshua, now in his fifties, searches for his father and discovers a heretofore unknown family history. And the super-intelligent post-humans known as "The Next" continue to adapt to life among "lesser" humans. But an alarming new challenge looms. An alien planet has somehow become "entangled" with one of the Long Earth worlds, and, as Lobsang and Joshua learn, its voracious denizens intend to capture, conquer, and colonize the new universe, Long Earth, they have inadvertently discovered. World-building, the intersection of universes, the coexistence of diverse species, and the cosmic meaning of Long Earth itself are among the mind-expanding themes explored in this installment of Long Earth Series by Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter. -- Provided by publisher
