Sid and Dan are back in this sequel to Running the Nullarbor. This time the retired army man and magician have joined the Australian Defense Force along with Sid's cousin Kit and her fox Marlowe in order to put Sid and Kit's magical abilities to work in the defense of their country.
Being in the army seems to be one dull moment after another and the threesome are stuck on the base when they discover there are worse things than basic training and meetings. When they go deep into the Australian Outback to check out strange happenings, they discover someone has opened a portal to the past. Pre-historic-jawed crocodiles and seven meter long monitor lizards are just the beginning as Sid, Kit and Dan find Australia has more enemies than the invading army inching across its northern reaches.
Can two magic users and a soldier penetrate an American army base, defeat magically-assisted secret service agents and shut down the portal to save Australia from the dinosaurs?
