Eternity's Wheel Wikipedia
With InterWorld trapped by HEX and his only other companion—the mysterious Time Agent Acacia Jones—missing in action, Joey's the only one left. Though injured and alone, he refuses to give up. How can he, when all the worlds are depending on him?
As the threat of FrostNight looms ever closer, Joey seeks out more of his fellow Walkers across the Altiverse, training them as fast as he can and trying to track down InterWorld Base Town along the way. But even a solid team of recruits—including Acacia's brother, Avery, who's not a recruit so much as a tenuous ally—can't prepare Joey for the ultimate showdown with InterWorld's enemies, old and new. Joey never wanted to be in charge. But he's the one everyone is looking to now, and he'll have to step up if he has any hope of saving InterWorld, the Multiverse, and everything in between.
Eternity's Wheel credits the story to Neil Gaiman, Michael Reaves, and Mallory Reaves with a "written by" credit being assigned to Michael Reaves and Mallory Reaves. In a YouTube posting from April, 2013, Gaiman explained that he met up with Reaves and Reaves (who are father and daughter) to plot out the third volume of the trilogy, but as with the previous volume in the InterWorld series, Gaiman's commitment to other projects prevented him from doing actual writing work on the book. The elder Reaves, meanwhile, suffers from Parkinson's disease, and was also unable to actually perform much (if any) writing work. Consequently, Eternity's Wheel was essentially written in its entirety by Mallory Reaves, with story notes and editing advice from the two credited co-authors.
