"Past Imperative" starts the tales of Edward Exeter when he ends up taken from the Earth during the First World War and ends up on the world of Nextdoor, there to fulfil a prophecy with a native of that land, Eleal Singer, to "bring death to Death".
A tale of epic proportions, the book is an absolute joy to read, and the series as a whole must surely go down as his best ever. It is well written, fast flowing from beginning to end, with a clever storyline and an inventive and interesting concept of "magic" that differs greatly from the norm. It is highly imaginitive, and very thought-provoking.
