"Prison of Sleep"

New from Angry Robot: Prison of Sleep: Book II of the Journals of Zaxony Delatree by Tim Pratt.

About the book, from the publisher:

Every time Zaxony Delatree falls asleep he wakes up on a new world. Now Zax has been joined once again by Ana, a companion he thought he left behind long ago. Ana is one of the Sleepers, a group of fellow travellers between worlds. Ana tells Zax that he is unknowingly host to a parasitic alien that exists partly in his blood and partly between dimensions. The chemical that the alien secretes is what allows Zax to travel. Every time he does, however, the parasite grows, damaging the fabric of the universes. Ana is desperate to recruit Zax to her cause and stop the alien.

But there are others who are using the parasite too, such as the cult who serve the Prisoner – an entity trapped in the dimension between universes. Can Zax, Minna, Ana and the other Sleepers band together and stop them?
