"It's twenty years since the Evenfall swept across the Vellum ... twenty years since Phreedom Messenger disappeared into the wilderness and Seamus Finnan got imprisoned in his own past. Twenty years of chaos have intervened but the Dukes, those remnants of the Covenant, still cling to power in their enclaves of order amid this bitmite-devastated wilderness." "Yet, across the folds of time and space, rogues and rebels are now rising up against the Empire. From a medieval fortress where the wandering mummers stage a harlequin play ... to Kentigern where another harlequin, Jack Flash, wrecks havoc on a fascist state that thought him dead. From a 1939 Paris where Jack Carter and Seamus Finnan, heroes of the International Brigades, seek to rewrite history ... to a 1929 Berlin where a very different Jack seeks to save the world from a history he himself has helped make real." "Locked in this eternal battle of chaos and order, it seems everyone must play their part now, whether as rebel or tyrant, hero or villain. And it is Guy Reynard, king of thieves, thief of lives, who links them all. He is the man who stole the Book of All Hours and then walked across eternity with it, the keeper of its secrets, the interpreter of its sacred script. But perhaps it's time to throw away a script written on the skin of angels."--BOOK JACKET.
