In this book Orion has another, different antagonist that his god-like avatar runners want him to deal with. This time the being is named Set, you know, the serpent god guy. This whole reptile control thing lets him be a dinosaur master. Now, really, this is pretty cool. Who wouldn't want to be a dinosaur master?

Orion still has to find some way to deal with him though.

"An intelligence knowing, at a given instance of time, all forces acting in nature, as well as the momentary position of all things of which the universe consists, would be able to comprehend the motions of the largest bodies of the world and those of the lightest atoms in one single formula, provided his intellect were sufficiently powerful to subject all data to analysis; to him nothing would be uncertain, both past and future would be present in his eyes."

---Pierre-Simon de Laplace

What if there were more than one such person?
A book of verses underneath the bough
A jug of wine, a loaf of bread---and thou
Beside me singing in th wildness---
Oh, wilderness were paradise enow!
To Lester del Rey, mentor
First words

With Anya beside me, I walked out of the ancient temple into the warming sunshine of a new day.
