DescriptionHave you ever wondered what lies beyond the dreamless sleep? In just nine days, Elize is about to find out, unless ... her twin brother Keeto can save her. Hidden away in a room that multiple entities desperately seek, an inner battle materializes amid the frames of reality. As time flows through the space between lives, meandering, spinning, and falling with every attempt to end the chase for answers, destiny creeps forward. In this fourth episode of the Nemecene(TM) series, Elize travels where few can safely pass, when memories can suddenly fade, and with guides who can simply mislead, while Keeto throws his faith into a game of trust-and-see. And the clock ticks on against them both. Meanwhile, the Gadlin subculture is dealing with an internal crisis of its own. They have pulled the planet's oceans into their vision for ecological atonement, even as their leader continues to twist the Gadlin creed into a Gadlin's greed. Although their efforts have set in motion a promising reversal of the toxic flooded world they call home, the global landscape is changing at an unprecedented rate. Where this well-meaning interference will leave humanity is a calculated risk. Success rests with civilization's ability to adapt. For the past three years, another secretive breed has been monitoring the twins' progress and has been undermining the Pramam's hidden agenda, in his capacity as the Unification's spiritual and political leader. Now, they pounce into action. One of their kind, Tuffurie, has assumed the lead under a directive to safeguard the veneer behind which truth lies. There are things in the water that must not escape the medium in which they are bound. The gurgling, stalking, and whispering mirages that have been tormenting Keeto's sanity, for far too long, must return to their prison, or his sister will not be the only one whose survival is at stake. What the twins have discovered, thus far, is a blip in the order of things. What they believe in is irrelevant. What they hope for is a miracle. How far would you leap to catch your dreams?

About the Author
Kaz Lefave is a Toronto-based science fiction world builder who crafts compelling stories by connecting the dots between science, art, music, dance, fashion, words, spirit, nature, reason, humanity, darkness, humor, and the inexplicable. She has a B.Sc. in engineering, a fashion degree, certifications in personal training and hypnosis, a US Patent, an IMDB director credit, a water/ocean philanthropy mission, and speaks English, French, Spanish, and few more. Kaz has also just recently surrendered to chocolate's persistence and to her standard poodle's tank top thievery.
A 21-year-old woman searches for a way out of the afterlife before her death becomes permanent in the fourth book of Lefave's (Through Fire and Ice, 2018, etc.) sci-fi series. Keeto Simone mourns the death of his twin sister, Elize. But it turns out that she isn't quite dead yet; she's floating in the purgatory-like "triverse." Here reside otherworldly beings, including an entity named Tuffurie, who've been watching the Simone twins as they've lived their lives in the physical realm. The siblings apparently have a role in the Gadlin Prophecy, whose details remain hazy. To return to life in the physical realm, Elize must gather nine ultraviolet orbs in the triverse within nine days. She also must retrieve a stolen indigo crystal pendant in the physical realm that was once hers. To recover the latter, Elize enlists Keeto's help by communicating with him via a years-old recording. Meanwhile, the Global Military Unit is on the hunt for alleged student terrorists at Schrödinger University, where Elize had once led an uprising. Keeto hopes to find Elize's crystal in time, while keeping the fact that Elize is still alive from the GMU and others. Although Lefave asserts that this installment launches a second trilogy in a proposed 10-part series, it picks up right where the preceding one left off. As in earlier novels, the author masterfully plays with narrative structure by drawing on a trio of perspectives--here, the recurring twin protagonists and Tuffurie. Keeto, for example, writes journal entries, which include conversations that he's recorded with his "transcriptor" device; he interrupts these transcriptions intermittently with annotations. Overall, there are more scenes of theoretical discussion than there are of action. But the cast of characters, including a villain whom Elize refers to as a "fedora-wearing freak," is a motley, energetic bunch. The incessant arguments among the sentient, sometimes-helpful orbs, Batef, Katef, and Akhtef, are the book's comedic highlights. An intelligent but challenging entry in an often engaging saga.
