Under the facade of the world's finest theme park lies a secret which could alter the course of human history.
Mike and Annie, refugees from the world outside, find a home underground, behind the scenes of Dreamworld, a theme park where hope exists as it does nowhere else. But Dreamworld is threatened by a jealous competitor who kills what he can't have. And if this were not trouble enough, Mike and Annie discover that each day there are more of the trolls who maintain Dreamworld then there were the day before. As the trolls continue to multiply, Mike and Annie must discover why....or it could mean the end of Dreamworld--and the real world.
Knotted in conflict and turmoil, what was a wonderful, carefree place becomes a battleground on which the fate of Earth's future is at stake. And only Mike and Annie, two unconventional heroes, can save it.

This is a classic Robinsonian romp through an alternate-universe future (but near-future) Disneyland on steroids. A couple of very gifted misfits find themselves, and each other, there, and when it becomes apparent that they not only have to save themselves but the theme park and, to top it off, the world, the sparks really start to fly. Warning: if the Callahan books were too silly for you, don't read this. But any fan of Robinson, or for that matter Heinlein or Douglas Adams, or any fan of the happiest place on Earth, should have a terrific time on this wild ride!
