Milky Way Marmalade Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Milky Way Marmalade

But some weird stuff is going on around the Milky Way. Planets are selectively vanishing and the enigmatic and rather narcissistic (and bit of a pervert) android, Poe 33, has become separated from his charge- the Great L'Orange- a wise lump of orange, gelatinous star stuff. As his programming dictates, Poe 33 must track down the blood-line of his maker- Caffrey Quark!

Will Caffrey bow to synchronicity and realize that his new found rock & roll bliss will be short-lived? Will he become the reluctant hero? Can Poe 33, Yin- his beloved West Highland Terrier and his jealous but soft-hearted computer, Angie aid in his adventure to some of the Milky Ways more bizarre ports-of-call? Will Caffrey be able to save his band mates, the galaxy and music itself, from an insane megalomaniac and his Order Determined to Overthrow Reality (O.D.O.R.)?
