I loved the creativity that it took to deal with the concept multiple plains of existence and the realistic way that she was able to spin them.
This is a great read for sci-fi/fantasy readers!
She has no idea she was born in another universe. Now she has to face a past that should have stayed hidden.
A secluded college campus in California holds a strange secret: It's linked, via an ancient, sentient entity called the pirisma, to a parallel world where history mirrored ours until a shocking change. No one outside a closely guarded research project realizes that most people on our earth have doubles in this other world... some of whom are pursuing deadly agendas.
To scientist Carlos Brujo, the elusive and long-dormant pirisma's return is an object of wonder and excitement. To retired Brigadier Gen. Ephraim Montrose, the reopening may presage an invasion that threatens an unprepared world. But to artist Hannah Fleischer, who's newly engaged to a police detective, the consequences will be unimaginable.
Strange perceptions trouble Hannah, who never knew she was smuggled as a child from the parallel world. When the link between the universes reactivates unexpectedly, cascading events thrust Hannah into the center of a crisis that could destroy both her worlds.
Praise for Jacqueline Diamond's novels
"Like the best of Dean Koontz's supernatural chillers, this novel [Echoes] forces readers to suspend disbelief."
--The Library Journal
"I read Echoes through in only two days–what a page-turner."
--A.C. Crispin, author of V and Starbridge
"Little by little Ms. Diamond built the suspense, reeling in her readers for a dynamic climax. Touch Me In The Dark continues to excite me, so much so that I recommend this fascinating book to one and all."
--Donna Zapf, Ecateromance.com
"With lean, precise, no-nonsense prose she takes the reader down all the right paths ... [The Eyes of a Stranger is] an intensely urgent page-turner."
--Los Angeles Daily News

From the Author
The concept and characters of Out of Her Universe grabbed me and refused to let go, through years of writing and revising and rejections from publishers. Even though I’ve sold some 100 novels and achieved various milestones, including winning awards and hitting bestseller lists, it was the opportunity to self-publish that allowed me to bring you this special novel. I hope you enjoy it.

I like a lot of this authors books...but this one not so much
This was the first one of Jackie's books that I've read, and I must admit that I'll be looking in to the others. Although I don't think that the blurb is exact to the story, it only really looks at a tiny piece instead of the overall picture, but that didn't stop the story from being awesome. I really enjoyed the concept of mixed universes. I liked Hannah and the world that she's thrown into and how she discovers she was smuggled as a little kid. That's really cool, in a strange multi-verse kinda way. I loved the creativity that it took to deal with the concept multiple plains of existence and the realistic way that she was able to spin them. This is a great read for sci-fi/fantasy readers!
