On the threshold of infinity, a world awaits the inevitable moment of annihilation – fearing the terrible wild colors that bleed through the shredded fabric of reality.
The river flows across the dimensions – lawless, unstable waterways that seep into chaos and violent uncertainty. Here, on riverboats and in doomed cafes teetering on oblivion’s edge, jugador gamblers work their mystical trade – while others, less adept, seek purpose in a space opera mythology that determines all things. And the river flows, carrying the best of the best, jugador supreme Jack Karaquazian, ever closer to the beautiful Colinda Dovero – the walking vision to whom he once promised his eternal heart…then lost through pride and blind folly.
And the river flows, uniting Sam Oakenhurst, disciple of machinoix pain, with his mysterious beloved, the Rose. For somewhere different upriver, they each have a role to play in a continuing cosmic drama-and must risk the future on the famous luck of Jack Karaquazian in the apocalyptic Game of Time.
