Cawdor & Co. are wandering about the southwest looking for a cyborg, Delphi, who is also looking for them (specifically Doc) and who in turn is being sought by Edgar Franklin - another cyborg - a member of the enigmatic pre-skydark sect TITAN an offshoot of Over-Project Whisper, more specifically Project Chronos.
The lions-share of this novel is spent by the heroes wandering aimlessly about the Utah border with a few moderately interesting battles / occurrences interspersed here and there. Example: The crew fights a laser bot sentry, presumably killing it only to have it return later but with an automotive incorporation. Also, Cawdor & Co. witness, then take part in a battle between Cannies and Slavers - here they acquire their transport for most of the story, "The Cyclops". Then they have to deal with Solenodons (something like Cuban rats) while trying to rid themselves of the Cannies.
Ominous news is proffered by a Doomie under the Baronship of Levine insinuating that if TITAN were to "ace" (that word is used WAY too many times in this novel) Delphi, a second skydark would well occur.
After a grisly battle, a lot of fire and "chilling", and a... kraken, I suppose - the story ends as one would expect. The sole cliff-hanger being TITAN & what this group is planning for The Deathlands.
Overall a story that spent more time meandering around than it did getting to the point. The character's seemed decently depicted as were the battles but when a sub-plot battle lasts for more chapters than the battle with the primary villain (who wasn`t entirely dislikable, which I didn`t really like - I didn`t like that he wasn`t dislikable, sounds funny)... that's moderately disheartening. Also, as prior reviewers have stated - there are a plentitude of editing mistakes in this novel. Most of them are generally small and can be read over without a second thought but if you pick up on these types of things you'll probably be annoyed, often.
