Come on an adventure through time and space with West Lothian Writers’ third anthology — Notes From the Multiverse.
Whether your interest is fairy tales, space opera, or just good old-fashioned murder and intrigue, these twenty-three tales will take your mind out of this world.
Out of Time
Time stops for no man, but it paused for one unusual woman.
She thought she was invincible. She was wrong.
Six hundred year old Julieanna Scott does not know what she is, or how she lost her humanity, but she never forgets and rarely forgives. When villains murder one of her companions, she sets out to eradicate the threat, but was Geoffrey’s death her fault or the widows?
Out of Step
A lot happens in six hundred years, but nothing prepared Anna for this.
Doctor Anna Scott only wanted modest comforts in life, but fate doesn’t give a figs-ear for personal preferences. One random chance left Anna with six centuries of questions, a large fortune, and a tool that controls all the particles in the Universe. You’d have thought such Godly power would come with a few instructions. You’d be wrong.
A quirky paranormal tale.
The plot is quite different from anything I’ve read in a while and follows Anna, who is 600 years old (though not a vampire. It’s not that kind of paranormal). I enjoyed the archaic feel of the main character and the magical/spiritual elements throughout the story.
I bought a paperback copy direct from the author at a conference last year and am finally getting around to writing the review! The paperback itself is beautiful quality.
This is my first paranormal book, but I found it to be a really good mystery as well. The writing is crisp and compelling. About two thirds of the way through I just had to finish it to know how it ended. There is humour in the book, and several of the characters are indeed “characters.” I loved the dog! Anna is a strong woman, used to doing everything herself. One of the subplots revolves around her learning humility and patience as well as learning to trust others. Does she succeed? Well, you will have to read the book. Two of her talents are fencing and rock climbing; the scenes using these talents seem technically accurate and authentic. I appreciated the lack of graphic sex and violence. I think it is suitable for a teenager.
