The Archipelago of Dreams is no more...but the battle to save it has just begun in the penultimate book in the acclaimed Chronicles of the Imaginarium Geographica series.

The Caretakers are at war. The Archipelago of Dreams has fallen to the Echthroi, and the link to the Summer Country has been lost. The Keep of Time must be rebuilt, and the secret lies somewhere in Deep Time at the beginnings of the World, when the Summer Country and the Archipelago were one and the same. Fortunately, there is still hope: the Grail child, Rose Dyson, and the new Cartographer Edmund McGee have learned how to map time, and through a precarious balance of travel to the past and the future, they have a chance of repairing the present.
Rife with allusions to history's great literary figures and personalities, from Gilgamesh and Medea to Edgar Allan Poe and H.G. Wells, this absorbing adventure, the sixth in the Imaginarium Geographica series, leads its heroes to a land where all secrets may be found: Known at the beginning of time as the City of Jade, history came to call it Atlantis. And it is there that the Architect of the Keep may have trained the young angel who built the city--an angel named Samaranth .

From ghoulies and ghosties and long-leggedy beasties and all creatures which go bump in the night may the good Lord preserve us, amen.

...immediately a section of the wall in front of them came crumbling down in a torrent of stones and dust. In moments, they were looking through a broad hole into the interior of the wall. "Oh my," said Uncas. "I thought a door would swing open, or the stones would magically rearrange themselves into an entrance, or something like that." "Maybe in the entrance to an alley of shops in London, it would do that," Aristophanes said as he stepped over the pile of rubble and inside the wall, "but this isn't that kind of place."

"Too often scholars limit themselves by working with what they know they know...when what they really need to know is what they know they need to know but don't yet know. So we aren't bothering with looking in the places we think he might be--we're looking in all the places we would never think to look. Because otherwise, we'd have already found him." "I'm starting to understand why you keep them sequestered in a hotel in Switzerland," John said to Verne. "He's not steering with both hands."

Absolutely splendid! The story gets better with each book. Onward to the end!

Second to last book in the series and it still kept me captivated the entire time. I was (somewhat pathetically!) overly excited when I realized that Madeleine L'Engle, Lloyd Alexander and J.K. Rowling (despite the final one being anachronistic) or allusions to them were featured along with some other historical "figures of importance". Some are obscure, so you have to be paying attention to find them :-)
