First, it was telepathic jellyfish. Then, it was a bit of
time travel that altered history. Or did it? But now . . .
We're way beyond jellyfish this time, baby.
In the third Preternatural novel, our human friend Karen
and the alien known as Govannon learn once again that time
ain't what it's cracked up to be.
Govannon's people, a.k.a., TQ, have always had the knack of
transmigrating from There to Here. Or is it Here to There?
But then a timeline hiccuped, stranding the entire species
between dimensions, out of time. In short, neither Here nor
Meanwhile, one of Govannon's human avatars seems to be in
two places at once. Or is he actually two different people?
Unless they solve this conundrum, Govannon may never find
his species or his way back home. He'll have to settle for
a human life and spend the rest of that life trying not to
change anything. And we all know how difficult that can be.
Besides, if he goes human on her, Karen's will lose him,
because he'll either be married or dead, and she can't
decide which would be worse. So here we go again.
Along the way, Karen and Govannon intervene in a
kidnapping, tangle with a group of neo-Nazis, and encounter
a woman who may be the illegitimate daughter of the Nazi
mastermind Joseph Goebbels. They're even involved in the
search for a missing billion-dollar Russian art treasure.
All of which bears a striking resemblance to a spy novel
that Karen once wrote but couldn't sell.
Except this time her fiction turns out to be fact. Again.
Or is it the other way around?
With her usual stylistic flare, Bonanno takes the reader on
another roller-coaster ride through the Möbius strip of
time, in what is meant to be her swan song
in "professional" publishing before she vanishes into a
dimension all her own.
Be seeing you . . .
