 CBY - Empress When Everett Singh’s dad was randomly sent to one of the many parallel worlds in the multiverse, Everett discovered a way to find him on the quarantined planet E1, home of the terrifying Nahn.
Now he, along with the crew of the airship Everness, has followed a trail to the next world and his father.
But this is a world where dinosaurs have had sixty-five million years to evolve, where death is the key to the throne and where the Empress of the Sun has a plan to wipe out every other creature on her planet… and then take her conquest to Earth.
All she needs is Everett’s infundibulum…
‘Breakneck action … This is vintage McDonald, with beautifully drawn settings, complex characters and deft plotting’ Guardian.
‘The Everness series has to be one of the best examples of quality, riveting YA Science Fiction I have ever read’ speconspecfic.com.

‘It’s action-packed, fun, well-composed and very well-written … filled with great observations, characters, and above all a great story’ Civilian Reader.

‘Imaginative fiction at its finest … for anybody who likes science fiction of the highest caliber’ Robin’s Books.

‘I hope that Ian continues to cater for teenagers as he has a real talent for tapping in to their world, and I know at least one kid that will be very disappointed if there is no more’ Concatenation.
