Long Earth #2: The Long War
A generation after the events of The Long Earth, humanity has spread across the new worlds opened up by Stepping, and fleets of airships link the stepwise Americas with trade and culture. A new 'America', called Valhalla, is emerging more than a million steps from Datum Earth, mirroring the core values of colonial America - and growing dissatisfied with Datum government control. Meanwhile, the Long Earth is suffused by the song of the trolls, graceful hive-mind humanoids, but the trolls are beginning to react to humanity's thoughtless exploitation. Joshua, now a married man, is summoned by Lobsang to deal with a growing crisis that threatens to plunge the Long Earth into a war unlike any mankind has waged before.
