Kaleem has found his father and soon finds the love of his life, Rozia Laurence, but he is still not comfortable with his role as Peace Child. He also has to face some of the less palatable truths about his home planet: it is blighted by the existence of the Z Zone, a place where poorer people live outside of society, and by switch-off, compulsory euthanasia for a healthy but aging population, including his mentor, Razjosh.
He has his work cut out for him and is helped by the love of his life, Rozia. However, her life is also put into danger.
Meanwhile, the mystery of the Babel Tower persists. Is the prophecy something mystical or just something convenient for everyone to hang ideas onto?
This is the secodn book in the Peace Child trilogy.
