what an excellent novel. listened to the entire thing in under a week. Mason is a classic, stoic leading man. This novel leaves you thinking about your life and what truly matters.
I don’t usually enjoy science fiction or fantasy but this story felt very original, yet still believable. At times I was reminded of The Time Machine, and at other times Frankenstein came to mind, as Nolte wove a thought provoking tale with plenty of action and intrigue along with studies in human nature and social..
A creative way of expressing the sadness and frustration of the demise of our world that is occurring before us, using endearing characters that we cared about and villains for whom we wanted to see a rapid end, all without beating us over the head with talking points. The novel resonated so well with me..
Best story I’ve read in years. Nolte says it’s the only one he plans to write, and it’s worth many a reread!
