I give Journeys Through SpaceTime (Journeys Through Book 1) by James Talisman, 5 stars.
This book takes individuals from many different worlds and links them together by one thing — they all have a mysterious voice they hear in their heads saying the exact same thing. Then thry each have to remember why they are hearing this voice. Each one of these characters is completely different and each one is dealing with a separate issue at the same time. Not only do the all have the same belief system, they are facing some sort of evil unique to their individual situations. That is the very basic outline of the story, put into a science fiction type of story.
The world building the author has created is absolutely incredible. There are multiple people in multiple worlds, and they are all created so well, you can picture yourself there. That is the goal of most fantasy/science fiction authors and this author nailed it. Then there are the characters. Again, each and everyone unique, with their own personalities and issues. These are not just flat placeholders to help the story along, the are very real.
Then there is the story itself. Actually, it is really like many stories in one book. To me, each person could easily have their own book. But the author rotates back and forth among the characters, making you wait to see what will happen next. But it is done so well, it does not feel forced or broken up at all. I was drawn into each story and could not wait to finish it. Of course, I have my favorites, but really, I would love to see them all again in future books.
While this book is definitely complex, the storytelling is phenomenal and I recommend to fans of science fiction and fantasy.
