Editorial Reviews

Review

"In Smith's (Reality Alternatives, 2016, etc.) sci-fi tale, an experiment opens portals to alternate universes and three
variations of the same young woman struggle in environments warped by climate change.
The opening of this book lays out three permutations of the year 2100, after global warming has damaged Earth.
"Universe 1" offers a scorched landscape where young, semiferal Kat Garcia scrounges for sustenance in the ruins with a
few other survivors. In the more livable Colorado of "Universe 2," college student Kaitlin Garcia anticipates a future
with her meteorologist boyfriend while researching a remedy for climate change even as superstorms and rising sea
levels batter the United States. In a police-state "Universe 3," elite scientist Katherine Garcia aspires to create a machine
that can generate limitless energy while she deals with swarming surveillance robots and pressure to join a
government-mandated dating and breeding program. A quantum-energy fluke opens portals between the three realities.
Now the triune heroines can not only communicate and assist one another, but also physically visit other
universes--along with assorted lovers, persecutors, and pursuers. But the aftereffects of the rifts are starting to make the
multiverse come apart at the seams. Although this isn't a comedy, Smith delivers the sci-fi equivalent of a high-speed
slamming-door stage play in the Lend Me a Tenor vein, full of scampering mix-ups, look-alike characters, and quick
entrances and exits. As in such productions, things start off sedate but soon accelerate crazily. It's an understatement to
say that it's tough keeping the characters, causes, and effects straight from universe to universe. Also, the plot relies
increasingly on interventions of a sassy, deus ex machina artificial intelligence named Pandora, who learns to transcend
universes and pull off godlike deliverance on demand. Despite the threat of Einsteinian, trans-dimensional total
destruction, things wrap up a little too neatly. Overall, though, Smith, a physicist, effectively invests the tangled yarn
with brio, imagination, and doses of real-life science.
A wheels-within-wheels yarn that isn't perfect but sure takes readers for a spin."--Kirkus Reviews
