The previous volume The Clan Corporate concluded with a sudden and unexpected attack. Miriam is simultaneously freed from her destined fate, but also cut off in the third world. (Ah, yes, that doesn't mean the developing world. No, the third parallel universe.)
And where there are three examples of something, it would seem strange if that was the limit - so Clan explorers attempt to see if there may be a fourth, or a fifth world. Because if there is, they may be able to escape their enemies, who seem to be increasing all the time.
No letup yet. But since this one is only just out, we'll have to wait for the next volume to be written.
