The sequel to The Fifth Child. Ben is now eighteen and must become part of the world even though he can never fit it. He is too huge and awkward, too strange. Alone and estranged from his family, he travels to London, France, Brazil and the Andes, searching for his people and a reason for his being. How will the world receive him and how will he fare?
