"...reads like Cherryh near her own top form... No padding or wheelspinning here, just the genuine article."

From the Inside Flap
Stephen Ridenour was still having nightmares...
The road home stretched endlessly. Stephen's knees shook. His eyes blurred.
He was going to be late. Mama would be mad...
A loud honk. He stumbled up the rutted bank. A car slowed and stopped.
"You look very tired. What's your name?"
"Zivon Stefano--" he had to pause for a breath. "--vitch Ryevanishov, sir."
The man turned to the others in the car. Laughter. Zivon frowned, wishing they would leave.
"You're a long way from home, Zivon Stefanovich. Would you like a ride?"
He climbed into the backseat. The man beside him laughed--a nice laugh-- and he was smiling. Zivon smiled back andducked his head as they left the road and whooshed across the field. The laughter from the back took a different note. The man beside himsaid something to the driver and the car stopped.
Outside were bushes and tall grass. He didn't know where they were, but he knew it wasn't home.
"What's the matter, Zivon Stefanovich?"
Stephen felt the man's hot breath on his neck...

As a healer, I will note, there were some components that truly hit the mark in this story. Information and perspectives that were extremely well handled, by someone who also grasps a synergy between the very new, of technology, quantum physics and virtual-realities, and the very old, traditional spirit-realm that has existed long before modern technology. Technology and science has gifted those working in the unseen realms, with a cosmology modern culture can understand, and a vocabulary to serve in explanation and description. Jane weaves the seeming disparities together into a story that also reflects a world that struggles to reconcile the two components of science and soul.
