Miranda Sayers’ wheelchair is taking her to certain pain and injury when the ramp on the handicapped van malfunctions. Collin First, who shares an apartment in the same building, comes to the rescue. To Miranda’s surprise he seems attracted to her. Their fledgling friendship is just starting when Randi comes face to face with Bud, an eight hundred pound animal like she’s never seen before. Imagine a huge puppy with fangs!
From this almost gentle beginning Linda Mooney powers up a story that I couldn’t put down. Turns out Collin is an Extinguisher from a parallel world. His job is to prevent any of the voracious animals that could literally eat up a city from coming through the Ducts that open up between the worlds. As she spins the story and the love develops between the two, or three, counting Bud, it just gets better and better.
Ms. Mooney doesn’t shy away from the issue of a relationship between a paraplegic and a handsome stud. Instead she lets the story grow with it.
I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Sandeflay. It parallels our world but some things are so much more advanced just as some things seem primitive in an exotic kind of way. I’m thrilled that I couldn’t predict how this author would work things out. Just when I thought I’d guessed the path she would take she’d veer off on a side path that was much better than the simple storyline I’d envisioned.
This story is rich in characters, love, eroticism and beautiful fantasy. Linda Mooney has done an excellent job of penning a story that will be fun for anyone who likes to get lost in a great book.
