By Misty Baker VINE VOICE on April 26, 2010
Format: Kindle Edition
Let me start by saying that I very rarely ever wish for a book to be longer; shorter maybe; but never longer. Now, keeping that in mind, this was novel that barely capped the 90 page mark and could have very easily blown past 500 without even batting an eye.. and that one fact alone made it even more intriguing to me.

Before I get started on the more boring aspects of this review, let me set the scene for you... Think "Babylon A.D." think "Mad Max" think "Concrete Jungle" got it? Great! Welcome to "The Tea Goddess."

Remy and Darling don't know each other (or at least that's what they thought) but when a very odd turn of events (Remy has a mild panic attack and takes it out on a mailbox, and Darling jumps from a moving boat) thrust them together they realize they have something in common...they used to be married, oh yeah.. and they can see the future. After days of endless question and dream analysis the duo suddenly realizes that THINGS aren't always what they seem, and even worse...neither are the PEOPLE they are with. In a race to save a dying world can they save themselves in the process or will their pasts come back to haunt them?

This novel, even though it's length was lacking, was (I have to admit) wildly entertaining; tackling a point of view that is not often thought of. Action Vs. Reaction. Here's an example to help you understand what I mean. I'm sure most of you have heard of the "Butterfly Effect' (no... not the movie, the theory) it is said, that a tiny butterfly can flap its wings and change the course of nature..setting off a tsunami thousand of miles away simply because the smallest amount of air generated from it's wings changed a ripple in the ocean. Now...

I received this as a review copy submitted to "Red Adept Reviews" by the author.

Overall: 4 1/4 stars

Plot/Storyline: 4 1/2 stars

The novella was set a few decades in the future, in an era when city dwellers had solar power, rooftop gardens for food, and moving walkways for transportation. Outside the cities, even in the US, it was like the third world, with farmers having nowhere to sell their crops, since the cities were now self-sufficient.

The story involved three strangers who were thrust together under very unlikely circumstances to unravel a mystery that may affect the entire planet. Soon, for reasons unknown to them at the time, they were on the run from bad guys who would stop at nothing to capture them. For the three strangers, learning who they were and completing their mission formed the heart of the story.

There was a lot of action packed into only 128 Kindle pages. The story included an old murder mystery, wild chase scenes, shoot-'em-ups, precognition, reincarnation, and a touch of Buddhist philosophy.

In the context of the story, the ending was logical and satisfying.

Characters: 4 1/2 stars

Remy Porter and Darling Daniels, plus the mysterious Clint, were the main characters. At first, they appeared to have no relationship to each other, but as the story developed, it became increasingly clear that some kind of bond existed between them. As the truth emerged, Remy and Darling came to realize that they had a mission to complete, despite the efforts by Clint to control them. Were their shared nightmares just bad dreams, or was there a meaning to them? And why did some people call Darling "The Tea Goddess"?

An unexpectedly intriguing dystopian novella set in a not too distant future where farmers are being edged out of the food business by inner city compact farming, big business controls the world and unemployment and dissatisfaction forces people to roam the planet, rather than just their own hometowns in search of something better. The powers of the supernatural and precognition arerecognised as useful sciences, and it is this premise around which The Tea Goddess is centered, as the three main characters seek to discover the secret their previous incarnations had discovered about the terrible future of the Earth. But one of them is not as he seems...

An exciting and unsettling race through a bleak, conceivable future which uses some very interesting hypothetical scenarios and neatly manages to not fall into any of the usual traps of modern dystopian novels (most of which pay obvious homage to 1984 or Brave New World). The main characters are interesting enough to make the reader want to know what happens to them; a common flaw in new dystopian fiction is that the author gets too involved in inventing his future world and forgets that he needs interesting people in it too, which is fortunately not the case here. I have reluctantly deducted a star for quite a few spelling and grammatical errors which should have been caught before publication and some formatting problems which leave large areas of blank space between chapters but the story is good enough that those errors can, in my opinion, be mostly ignored. A very enjoyable read and I look forward to reading more by this author.
