Cassie Klyne lives with her Aunt Nerissa and her brother Thomas in an alternate Buffalo, NY, circa 2015. Neither the Great Depression nor World War II has occurred, and the world is slowly but steadily gaining in overall prosperity. Cassie, however, knows that her world is not as it seems; her parents were murdered for their discovery that that human history has been manipulated by an extraterrestrial presence for sinister reasons. When a mysterious man dies suddenly outside her apartment, Cassie knows that the alien killers are back, and she and her brother must flee for their lives.
VERDICT The Hugo Award-winning author of Spin has written a story of gradual suspense and quiet terror, with believable characters and a compelling plot. Fans of conspiracy theories, alien encounters, and supernatural suspense should enjoy this work. [See Prepub Alert, 5/13/13.]
