Adrian J. Smith, or “AJ” as she is often called, is a part-time writer with an epic imagination, sharp wit, and kind heart that gets her into a bit of trouble when it comes to taking in all the neighborhood stray cats. Being obsessed with science fiction, Smith often goes off on tangents about the space-time continuum. She is also a part-time lunatic with a secretive past. It’s been rumored that she was once a spy for the government, but anyone who has gotten close enough to know the truth has never lived to tell the tale. When traveling around the world on various classified tasks, Smith requires the following be provided: buffalo jerky, mimosas, and eighty-six pennies. This is all we know about the reclusive woman.

"You're invited!"

Then I draw some sketchy little thing that makes no sense. Afterward, I open the inside and write a little note.

"Dear Inspiration,

You're invited to my apartment today. Specifically the little red couch of which I adore. I'll be awake at seven in the morning, but please don't arrive until after eight. Make sure it's before nine though because I have to work at eleven. I'll be waiting.

With love and adoration,

Adrian."(less)

I was so excited to get to read this book and I was left a bit disappointed. I loved Brigid and I loved the premise/plot of the piece. However, I thought the movement was too fast in some places and too slow in others.

This piece is like a crazy cross between Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica (the newer one). There are twists up the wazoo in this plot and at times it's as if I was saying to myself, there can't be another one just as something new would happen.
