In truth, I have a lot of trouble understanding what people found boring about this book, yet at the same time exciting about Book Ten. The two—like all of the recent books in the series—very much seem to be chapters in a much longer book, all blending together and flowing as one. But, once again, Perrin has always been one of my favorites, if not my favorite, characters in the book. So, his sequences are always fun for me. This plot is interesting because it offers Perrin a chance to change in a different direction—and, I think, in an important direction.
Those are important events—he needs to be forced to admit that he has begun to like fighting and killing.

Confronting that aspect of himself is what will give him the strength to lead into Book Twelve. In fact, I officially began writing on Book Twelve this afternoon.

There he is thrown into a dark cellar with a timid petty crook named Lefty Conners.

As he explores the building above the laboratory Blake becomes trapped. He manages to escape and discovers that Lefty is really Pranj.

He returns to the weird vehicle in the laboratory and activates it just as one of the world's natives shoots him in the left shoulder with a heat ray. The carrier then takes Blake to a world in which Manhattan is a bleak landscape dotted with stone towers and patrolled by carnivorous hag-like creatures accompanied by giant robot centipedes. Escaping from that world and trying to get back to his own world, Blake comes to a similar one, a world in which New York has been bombed into ruins. As he confronts one of the natives, the carrier activates itself and vanishes. The native takes him to Sarge, a benign dictator whose group has colonized Central Park and hopes to restore some measure of civilization on Manhattan after they have cleared out the "hiders", the criminal element that preys upon them.
Sarge tells Blake about a shadowy character called Ares, who appears to be organizing the hiders, and Blake assumes that it is Pranj, using his teledynamic abilities to control the lesser men. Believing that Kittson and his team will eventually come to this world, Blake leads a team to the Patroon Place house, pointing out the drug store on the way so that some of the men can scavenge its contents.
At the house the men find evidence of a recent visit and they leave Blake and one young man to wait. Warned by his sense of foreboding, Blake pushes the young man into the garage just as the booby-trapped house explodes. Blake takes the injured man to the drug store to hole up for the night and wait for the rest of Sarge's men to return.
