Four months after Ben disappeared through the portal to his home universe, Janelle believes she’ll never see him again. Her world is still devastated, but civilisation is slowly rebuilding, and life is finally starting to resume some kind of normality. Until Interverse agent Taylor Barclay shows up. He’s got a problem, and he needs Janelle’s help. Somebody from an alternate universe is running a human trafficking ring – kidnapping people and selling them on different Earths. And Ben, with his unique abilities, is the prime suspect. To make things worse, Janelle learns that someone she cares about – someone from her own world – has become one of the missing.
Now Janelle has five days to track down the real culprit. Five days to locate the missing people before they’re lost forever. Five days to reunite with the boy who stole her heart. Can she uncover the truth before everyone she cares about is killed?
Unravelling was one of my favourite reads of last year, all the more impressive because it was a 2012 début. It has an awesome science fiction premise and a cast of characters that I loved. I’m really looking forward to getting back into the world and seeing what adventures await Janelle and Ben. It’s a bit of a wait for this one, but there is a novella, Undone (Goodreads), coming in March to tide us over! Undone will explore Janelle and Ben’s lives before they met. From the Goodreads synopsis of Undone:
