I have been a fan of Marilyn Peake’s for some time now and was lucky to get my hands on her contribution to the boxed set…The Other.
The Other by Marilyn Peake is a time travel story, but she has given me a fresh and novel approach and I love it.
We begin with Cora, who is off to Roswell, but not to study the aliens. She is there to study the UFO cult, The Astral Plane, and their behavior. I like her quick wit and snarky attitude. I felt the same way she did when she went through the airport. I used to get hassled all the time and felt they treated me like a terrorist.
What starts out as a research project becomes a mystery. They’re here…but they’re not who you think they are.
Jade is a normal girl, adopted and looking for her birth mother. She’s nothing special….Right? Boy is she in for a surprise.
As I travel in the world Marilyn Peake has created, many questions rise to the surface.
If you went back in time and killed your mother, would you be born? As I thought about this, more and more questions came to mind.
Marilyn’s fantasy worlds contain the good and bad of humanity, but leave me with good feelings. She writes in multiple genres and does it very well.
The Other is so no exception. I am off on an adventure of gloom and doom, faith and hope, in a world seem through Marilyn Peake’s magical words. I was angry for the planet, angry at the ignorant characters, yet the good shines through.
If The Other by Marilyn Peake is any indication of the rest of the stories in Dominion Rising, this is a boxed set you won’t want to miss.
I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of The Other by Marilyn Peake.
MY REVIEWS FOR MARILYN PEAKE
Madness. Wholeness. Healing through the tiny details of a life lived among others who care for us, and the terrible fragility we all navigate. This is a classic. So much larger than can be contained within its pages.
THE OUTWARD ROOM is the best kind of philosophical book: one rooted in story, in character, and one in which the word 'philosophical' never appears, and yet it asks all the important questions, and does so brilliantly, in a mere 230 pages.
Reward yourself. Read this book.
