Fasten your seatbelts for an interplanetary pilgrimage with Mario and Caitlyn as they escape Planet Monday. No, really. That's the name of the planet, or at least the name the Baxters, those who colonized the planet, gave it. The vivid imagery, the plot and numerous and complex subplots, this was one beautiful story. In fact, the only negative thing I could find was that Grace Bridges ended it in the middle of the story (I certainly hope a sequel is on the horizon).
So, what's it about? Picture yourself living in a world of grays, everyone doing the same thing day in and day out. And if emotions increase too much there is always the Mindwipe, a facility used to erase a person's memory. She handles all of this and so much more with the reality that set her apart in Faith Awakened. When I read Legendary Space Pilgrims I was amazed at how she seemed to have a intuition when it comes to having just the right amount of technical information to make the story work without coming off like an instruction manual or something geekish. Instead everything comes off sounding, as I've said, realistic, even though we fly about on a space pod, visit some of the oddest planets, and find out that we are somehow involved in some ancient prophecy.
I can go on and on, but I don't want to give too much away. You will find that this is one of those fantastic works that sets a person apart. It will take you places you'd never dreamed of going, and all along you'll find suspense, humor, confusion, and a budding relationship, just among a few things you'll enjoy along the way. So grab your copy and jump into the story of your life.
