Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
06/01/2014
It's the world of today, except that occasionally, at unpredictable times and places, the laws of physics are repealed—and when gravity starts disappearing, or a dimensional vortex appears, the Federal Bureau of Physics (FBP) is called in to return things to normal. With the bureau facing the possible legal privatization of "physics incident response," Adam Hardy, FBP field agent and son of a marginalized physicist who disappeared into a quantum tornado, puts his life on the line attempting to rescue a man trapped in a bubble universe. But he finds himself in the middle of a conspiracy that raises the stakes considerably. Oliver's (The Exterminators) sf ideas are intriguing, and his focus on inter-FBP personality dynamics provides a human dimension. But his ordinary writing and plotting render the book less exciting than the above description suggests it should be, and Rodriguez's scratchy, sketchlike, and sometimes exaggerated artwork doesn't do enough to sharpen it. VERDICT Decent but uninspiring. With some gore, this is for larger adult collections.—S.R.
