In my quest to read from different genres in 2018, I found myself intrigued by Jasmine Scott's novel, Erin Bailey is a Time Lord, a science fiction story that crosses across multiple genres. Most of my recent reads have been children’s books, cozy mysteries or contemporary fiction, so it was time to expand the horizons this week. An interesting choice that gave me a lot to think about; let’s get into the review.
Characters, Plot, Approach & Style
Erin needs to save the world… from some things he’s done throughout time as a result of his unknowing, yet inherent actions. Cassandra, a beauty that perfectly completes him, feels the direct result of what happens. It’s difficult to say too much without revealing some of the wonderful surprises or mysteries that are better left to be discovered as you read, but ultimately, being a ‘time lord’ is not exactly what you think it is! Did that get your attention? By interacting with various controls and controllers, Erin tries to do the right thing to set things in order again, but he finds himself thrown a few steps forward and backward at the same time. Author Jasmine Scott weaves a tale set in a different world, somewhat familiar, but also unique and new given many characters we’re familiar with and some we are not. Told in third person POV with a focus generally set on Erin, the male protagonist and Time Lord, the novels ran about 130 pages – much shorter than a typical science-fiction book. This was quite helpful to a newbie like me, and it will introduce you to a world which I secretly suspect is rather large and may come back in the form of a sequel or different story-arc (just my speculation).
I’ll start out by saying I’m not a science-fiction fan. I’ve read a few novels and watched a few TV shows, but it’s not a normal genre for me. I was worried, but I needed to push myself. This novel makes that easier, as while it is in the science-fiction realm, it’s actually a more comprehensive story about love, choice, forgiveness, protection, penance, and righting something considered wrong. Time-travel is a key component, but once you go beyond those boundaries, it’s about the relationships between each of the characters. That’s where you’ll find the meat of this story.
I enjoy the author’s writing style. It flows easily, speaks to the beauty of relationships, develops characters with substance and offers something a bit more lighthearted than a typical techno-science-like novel full of rules and regulations about what people can and can’t do in the ‘fantasy’ world. Instead, Scott offers something contemporary wrapped with a skilled approach at revisiting time periods, actions and impacts of decisions (or lack of decisions…) throughout history. I respect her ability to pull together such intricacy in what the impacts are of everyone’s actions not only in the current time, but also the past and the future. She deserves kudos and praise for this great balance in her work.
I’m sure everyone will focus on Cassandra and Erin, the primary characters. And they were good and strong, don’t get me wrong. I liked the introduction in semi-small parts to the deities or gods, the secondary relationships and the trouble-makers in the bunch. Each has a strong personality that lets you know what you’re dealing with, but also leaves a little guesswork to consider what’s actually going on. You’ll find elements of spirituality and ancient deity-worship, fundamental and core relationship dilemmas, and concepts of life and death.
If you’re wavering about whether to give science-fiction a shot, this may be a good entry point. If you’re a die-hard fan of the genre, but up for something unique, then take the chance.
One of the exciting things I learned is that the author, Jasmine Scott, has several other books which she plans to re-publish soon under her new publisher. How exciting for her – and the rest of us. A chance to read may books by the same author, in a variety of genres. As I get through my expansive TBR this year, I’ll see which she publishes and pick another to read in the coming months.
