Following the murder of a wealthy businessman, a disputed will leads to family strife and a deeper mystery.
For thirty years young men have been selected by lottery for a top secret government program known as the "Nowhere Journey". The duty is on a rotational basis, yet no one has ever returned. This novella follows the journey of 26 year old Kit Temple as he takes the Nowhere Journey farther than anyone before. The book has some interesting ideas but unfortunately the ending fails to tie up some loose ends.
This book tells the story of a young girl coming to awareness of her family history, her true nature, and her unique powers. The story is overall ok, very good in parts. I probably would have given 4 stars but the artificial teen dialog got to me after a while.
Does the question - "What is time?" - hold interest for you? How does our perception of past, present, and future actually work? This book presents an interesting idea on that, as well as the concept of "paratime". Anyway, the story is about a paratime-travelling police officer assigned to correct an inconsistency that has been introduced into an alternate timeline. I found it original and entertaining.
