“Amateur ghost hunters Cy and Zelda are invited to the BWCA in Northern Minnesota to investigate an alleged haunting at Brighton Lake Lodge. Mac, the owner, has returned home from London with plans to restart the family business, but the ghosts have to be dealt with first.
Interesting things happen the moment they arrive; it seems there isn’t one ghost, but many. One of them uses Zelda’s robot, Orwell, to communicate with them, and they find out the ghosts aren’t ghosts at all.
Set in a time in the not-so-distant future, the story destroys ideas of what is real, what isn’t, and reveals the lengths people will go to in order to survive.”
I ‘met’ Fen’s work several years ago when a friend lent me the first of the Precog in Peril books and immediately fell in love with it.
What do I expect when I pick up a new Fenraven book?
Well-defined characters that I would recognize if I saw them on the street? – check
Description of scene that not only makes me see it, but makes me feel like I’m there? – check
Excitement? – check
GLBT characters? – check
Hot and erotic M/M sex? – Oops – not this time. In fact, there is very little sex at all.
So what do we have? A fast-paced, science fiction story set in the near future that will draw you in from the beginning.
When Cy and Zelda meet Mac, they hope they are going to find ghosts. What they find is much more, an alien species that warns of impending danger to Earth due to the climate change no one believes in.
With the help of Zelda’s brother and two robots, they discover a secret the government doesn’t want known.
I cannot recommend this book enough to science fiction fans. Forget it’s GLBT – it’s science fiction.
PS – I want an Orwell.
