Hidden Faults is written with the same skill and attention to detail of Somerville's previous novels. I wondered whether it's an alternative view of the earlier Pindone novels, or just takes place a long time after those stories, when society's attitude toward paranormal abilities has evolved into open hostility. The change is quite extreme and disturbing, but it's not something that would bother new readers.

What kept me from giving this novel five stars was the prison plotline. I wish the auth

I love the way Ann Somerville tells her stories and I also really enjoyed reading this. But I'm retracting a star because of the jump in time near the end. I was so into the story and wanted to know what happened next faster than I could read, so I got really disappointed when that sudden "jump" in time came. I feel like Somerville cut corners by doing that and it almost dropped the story on the floor for me. I would really have loved to have read the changes "upclose" instead of getting it told ...more

I have loved all of the books by Ms. Somerville set on Perriter, a world like ours except that some people have a gene that causes a combination of paranormal powers and infertility. This one is the second of two set in a country and time where the paranormals are feared - forced to register, be tattooed, drugged so that their powers cannot manifest and often jailed. The MC in this one is a doctor trying to find a medicine to make the paranormal powers go away when his own suddenly end up manife ...more

I like this story as I do other Ann Somerville books. Personally, though, Jodi's a little bitch for most of the book and made finishing a struggle. For a doctor and a scientist he's just unbelievably dense.

Something is really wrong with that plot. I did not like the story.

Main character is Jodi and he comes together with Kir. Jodi's life turns upside down to many time to be normal at the end. And while we get happy ending there relationship is like walking on ice and fire. First one is complicating then another one is complicating. There relationship is written to strange and the whole book is so .......

I just feel something is wrong with the plot. If someone figures it out please do let me know.

Very good up until the last two chapters, which wind everything up in a sort of Readers Digest summary of 18 months of plot.

Ann Somerville grew up in one of Australia’s prettiest small cities. In 1989, she left Australia with a BA and a burning ambition to see more of the world and its people, and to discover this ‘culture’ thing people kept telling her about. In 2006, she returned home to Southeast Queensland with two more degrees (this time in science and IT), an English husband and a staggering case of homesickness, ...more
