The massive net that catches the dead when they drop from Earth is called Ropes, and it is woven together by an endless thread. A lone rat scurries from cord to cord, careful not to fall through the gaps. There are more corpses than usual, but such is the nature of the Fell Thirst. Thus far, there is only one known way to quench the sick compulsion for water once it hits, and that is to keel over and die.
So even Prince Kobias is perplexed over why he survived. Noted as the first to fall and the only to stand back up, Kobias has become the prime culprit as the cause of the plague during the crisis meetings. Rival kings have come together to shove around the blame, but only the prince even bothers to wonder if there is a cure for the sickness. Now alien executives, pirate clowns, and armies of clockwork men are all out to capture Kobias before he speaks up, and the only friends he has are his annoying older sister and a skeletal rat that just skittered from the crack under his door.
The undead rodent, however, knows something about the plague that everyone else has missed. It has just clawed its way out of the Levels of the Undergloom, and it means to lead Kobias through the hostile world to the truth: Time is ripped vinyl on a record player, and the universe is skipping, skipping.
