Having read and enjoyed Mr. Kirby's first novel, I was fairly certain his second book would be entertaining also. I wasn't expecting it to be so completely different though. He has created a unique tale of doppelgangers who body snatch earthlings after their own world has been destroyed. It follows one entity's journey from body to body as he tries to relate his `truth' in order to warn the earth and save it from a hostile takeover.
With twists and turns aplenty, I often found myself confused and compelled to keep reading to figure out what was happening. I was first annoyed that the protagonist told his story in the present tense, but finally figured out it was because he only lived in the `here and now' - and he had difficulty understanding why everyone else lived so much in the past. There are several underlying messages such as this one that will make you ponder your own existence.
An intriguing and creative thriller, Mr Kirby has penned a worthy second book. Fabulous job!
