This is the third novel by Neve Maslakovic, and the second in the “Incident” series.
Let’s cut to the chase… Did I like the book? Yes, definitely. Did I like it more then the first two of Neve’s books? No, not really. Here is the problem that I have with books in a series: Things are a bit repetitive. Take the Dan Brown books for example. I read the first four in the order in which they were published. The first one was a bit rough as far as style goes, but it was a good story, the second one was written much better, but the story seemed familiar. By the third one I knew what to expect, and after the fourth one I gave up.
I hope that Neve’s books will grip my attention for a bit longer... Here is the experience I had with her three books so far: I loved Ducks&Universes - it was a great story. What’s not to love about bifurcating universes?!? It was a fresh story. The Incident series is about time travel, not quite as fresh, but whenever you let an engineer tell you a time travel story, there are always some new angles to be an old story.
That brings us to the "Runestone Incident". If you’ve read the “Far Time Incident”, you already know the cast, you know about how time travel works with STEWie, and you know in what a mess one can get when being stranded in time. If this is all new to you, Neve is giving you a quick introduction into all this, so you are not left behind. I would still recommend to start with #1 in the series, just to get a better introduction to the cast, but if you don’t have the time, dive right into #2. Could this first section of the book been a bit shorter for readers coming to this book via the “Far Time Incident”? Certainly, but I was not too bothered by a quick refresher in time travel in the STEWie environment.
It would not be a book in the “Incident” series, if everything that’s happening is proper and legal - this time, our time traveling crime fighters are taking their investigations to the time of the Vikings, but they stay close to home in Minnesota. I am not going to repeat the book description here, I’ll just say that the story prompted me to look up certain details and back stories online. So in addition to having a few entertaining evenings with the book, I learned a bit about American history.
It’s a good story with a few twists, it does not get boring.
I am looking forward to the next "Incident" book.
Time travel is happening in present day at St. Sunniva University. Julia Olsen has just arrived back from a harrowing trip back in time with a young girl from that time. Her soon-to-be ex calls asking her to take him back in time to find out if a story passed down in his family was true. A story about a Runestone. Long story short, he and a postdoc student take a trip without permission and a group has to go find them. Great and interesting adventures await them
One reproach however: Time travel seems to be just a background to a crime novel rather than the main topic.This is a pity because with her ability to describe characters, the author could do very interesting things without adding any crime in the story.
I find it implausible in this day and age that the government would allow such a machine to be run by outside of government control.
