This book is the sequel (which I have not read) to OTHERWORLD by the same authors. I gamely started it anyway, expecting enough back story explanations to soldier on. By the time I reached Page 67, however, I had been bombarded by so much cluttery, silly detail that I gave up. In that amount of reading, however, I encountered a lot of bad language and puerile sexual references. The quality of the writing would not lead me to buy this book for a library or friend.
