A Marvelous Scifi/Fanatsy Read!
I love Science Fiction and Fantasy novels, but I am very picky when it comes to buying them and it takes a really good novel to grab my attention and to keep me entertained until the end. Converge is one of those rare novels that engaged my attention until the last page.<BR/><BR/>The plot of Converge is very intriguing: most of us experience unrequited love at least once in our life, but imagine falling in love with someone who lives in another dimension?! This is the sticky situation the lead character of Converge, Finn, finds himself in. Ever since the age of three, he finds himself connected to Ari who lives in the so-called Beta dimension (earth as we know it), but people from the Alpha dimension (the dimension in which Finn lives) are not supposed to contact people from the Beta dimension, let alone fall in love with them!<BR/><BR/>As Finn grows up, his covert observation of Ari borders on stalking and it threatens not only his career, but his life as well. The reader is taken on a journey where he/she is (at first) revolted by Finn stalking Ari in the way he does, but then (at the same time) consumed by curiosity as to where this bizarre ¿obsession¿ might lead him.<BR/><BR/>The reader becomes one with Finn and is moved by what turns out to be true love and devotion. The novel falls within the genre of Erotic novels, but unlike some erotic novels I have read, where you encounter a sex scene very few pages and where it does not really serve to enhance the plot line, the erotic component of this fantasy novel is beautifully enhanced by the erotic component. The erotic elements within this skillfully crafted novel become a testament of the ever-growing love between Finn and Ari.<BR/><BR/>Converge managed to capture my attention right from the first page and I felt emerged in the life of the main characters. It felt like I was one with Finn and as if though his experiences were mine. I lost myself in this book and I really can¿t wait to read the sequel, Merge!Was this review helpful?
