Lola is a geophysicist living in the US. Somadina is a young married woman living in Nigeria. They are brought together by a connection that the rest of us do not comprehend. Being able to talk to someone and experience their emotions while countries away is not the average gift. These two women come together to help each other.
Science fiction and fantasy are not my favorite genres. There are few books that can grab me in either of these styles. Since this book was a mixture of both I was a bit skeptical. Also the mention that it was an interactive book threw me a bit. First I never noticed where I was supposed to interact. Perhaps my kindle isn't updated enough or this was left out of my version.
The research seemed to be very thorough. The characters were believable and very well written. But I just couldn't connect with the book. Perhaps if the subject matter had been different I might have connected better. If you are a science fiction or fantasy fan, or would love to read about the oil industry, or about Nigeria you will probably really enjoy this book. It just wasn't for me.
I received this book free of charge in exchange for my honest review.
