*This book was sent to me in exchange for an honest review.

In this time jumping tale, grieving mother Shannon arrives unexplained in another world after the sudden death of her son. When she arrives in this strange world over and over, she has unforeseen impacts on the alien culture developing there.

While this book looks really pretty and interesting, it all felt incomplete and ultimately unsatisfying. I was intrigued by the concept but I didn’t feel like Shannon was learning anything as the book went on. It tries to be deep but maybe with more length, this book would have achieved what it was going for; a mother forced to deal with her child’s death through her journey in this developing world.

Mild spoilers: It was also infuriating how she kept fucking up this species. It all left me more frustrated than entertained. 3 out of 5.

Coming back together…

If you’ve been following me on Titter or Facebook, you’re aware how the last week or so hasn’t been easy. To sum up, I had someone try to screw me over and now he’s gone. It was just the tip to a very depressed iceberg where all my grieving over my mother was made exponentially worse. But I’ve been making myself feel a lot better.

I’m getting back to what makes me happiest; writing, drawing, and my family. 🙂 It’s all a process, yes? There will be ups and downs and this week or so was a down. I’m ready for the up.
