It's the final curtain call for Fiorinda, the flame-haired rock princess, Guinevere to Ax Preston's King Arthur and Sage Pender's Sir Lancelot. Together, the Triumvirate have fought to save their Britain, and America - indeed, the whole world - from the depradations of a collapsed economy and environmental meltdown.
Together they have fought the evil magic of Fiorinda's wizard father; they have explored the depths and heights of ultimate consciousness, the fusion between mind and the world. And they have discovered a love that goes back centuries, and lives.
But is all this enough to save a world that has fallen apart at the seams, a world that has given itself over to the dark side?
