He’s saved the world twice. Now the dangerous but charismatic Ack-Ack Macaque finds himself leading a dimension-hopping band of angry monkeys, facing an invading horde of implacable killer androids, and confronting the one challenge for which he was never prepared: impending fatherhood!
Meanwhile, former journalist Victoria Valois finds herself facing old enemies as she fights to save the electronic ghost of her dead husband, and Merovech, King of the United Kingdoms of Great Britain and France, receives a troubling message from the dead sands of Mars...
Gareth L. Powell has written nine novels, including the Embers of War trilogy and the Ack-Ack Macaque series, as well as somehow finding the time to produce two short story collections, the nonfiction guide About Writing, and the novellas Ragged Alice, Downdraught, and Light Chaser (co-written with Peter F. Hamilton). He has twice won the British Science Fiction Association Award for Best Novel and been finalist for both the Locus and Seiun Awards.

"Ack-Ack is an inspired creation, a monkey with attitude, issues and a hole where his heart should be, and his latest deftly plotted adventure is riotous fun." -- The Guardian
– The Guardian
"More fun than a barrel of steampunk monkeys - It's an over-the-top, verbally caffeinated adventure story with smart, nasty ideas and plenty of pulp." -- Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
