Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Present Tense: Round Two of the Great Game

In the second book of the Great Game trilogy, Edward Exeter has tried to escape his prophesied destiny by returning home. He ends up on the battlefield at Flanders in the middle of WWI, and it takes the combined efforts of an old school friend, a teacher, and his cousin Alice to get him out of trouble. In return, he tells them of his time on Nextdoor - including his involvement in a local war there and his increasing understanding of the abilities of strangers. He returns to Nextdoor, intending to stay only for a brief time, but once again gets caught up in the Great Game. The entire series is excellent, and this book is no exception.
