Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Adrenaline-lifter Christa Faust (Money Shot; Coyote's Kiss) is back with another mass-market paperback and NOOK Book original to induce insomnia. In this novel, set in Boston, she enters the world and characters of the recently completed TV series Fringe to unfold pressing cases that baffle normal minds. Definitely worth a nod.

From the Publisher
“An exciting book for Fringe fans, packed with new information and new character development.” – Fruitless Pursuits 

“Walter is a likeable character on the show, and it was good to see his trademark eccentricity translated well into the book.” – Fiction Addict

    Loved it

    As a fringe fan I was excited to read this book and can say I was not disappointed. I could'nt put it down. The characters were just as I remembered them from the show and the pace of the story was good.

    Great fun !

    I am a huge Fringe fan and loved every moment of this book. I thought the blend of a bit of real life to the fringe universe was fun and interesting. The refrences to the show made me smile and do a happy squeal. I love young walter!

    Delightfully Fringy!

    A joyously trippy adventure with the help of Walter Bishop, William Bell, and Nina Sharp. 'The Zodiac Paradox' is well written in gripping prose, and full of delicious tidbits of fanservice and canon series references. For a Fringe-dweller going through withdrawal from the series, this book is a welcome contribution to the canon. Thanks for keeping Fringe alive!

    This book will disappoint Fringe fans. It does not capture the

    This book will disappoint Fringe fans. It does not capture the mood of the TV series. The story begins with some promise, but quickly settles into a tedious science fiction tale. The ending is unsatisfying. Character development is poor. The character of William Bell is hardly developed at all, and bears little resemblence to the flawed genius of TV. The tie-ins to the TV series seem contrived, instead of artfully evoking the origins of the Fringe team and their future exploits.
