An Easy Death by Charlaine Harris

I have read most of Charlaine Harris' novels, and this is the start of a new series, so I had to try it. Even though....I don't like dystopian novels, I don't like a lot of violence, and I don't like depressing characters. HOWEVER, Harris is one of o ...more

Audrey Schulman has crafted a somewhat unique novel of the near-future, with post-apocalyptic events, implanted tech, human-animal interactions, and a lot of science facts mixed in with a surprising amount of seemingly irrelevant information about th ...more

I have read them all, so reading number 10, "Magic Triumphs," in the Kate Daniels (Lennart, now) series was a lot of fun and did not disappoint. I am not a big fan of all the gory, bloody fight scenes, so I "fast-forward"-- scan, slip pages, etc.-- t ...more

Very disappointing.

I read both of the other books that preceded this in the" Wayfarers" "series," and liked them a lot.

This one, though, NOPE.

First, Chambers doesn't seem to understand or properly employ the concept of 'series" all that well with t

“Knowing that a particle can occupy two different states at the same time—a state known as superposition—and, two particles, such as two particles of light, or photons, can become entangled, means that there is a unique, coupled state in which an action, like a measurement, upon one particle immediately causes a correlated change in the other.
If there is a better word to describe my relationship with Fanio than entangled, I have yet to hear it. Even when the two entangled particles—or people—are separated by a great distance (and I mean emotional or physical distance, such as mine with Epifanio, or like being at opposite ends of the universe), their movements or actions affect each other. Yet, before any measurements or other assessments occur, the actual "spin states" of either of the two particles are uncertain and even unknowable.”
Sally Ember Ed.D.

“I ask, “How may I be of service? Why are you here to see me?” I put a slight emphasis on “me,” and they respond to that, first.
“You ask us to come,” they intone, in unison.
Considering for a moment, I chuckle. “Yeah, I guess so,” I reply. “But, why now? And, I can’t be the only one inviting you. So why come to me?” I repeat.
They make those amused sounds again (at least, that’s what I think they are) and do not respond further.
I shrug and ask, “Will you help us humans? I have lots of questions.”
“We have lots of answers,” one of them says.”
Sally Ember Ed.D.

“Now that we are all properly introduced,” I continue, “Back to business. Why are you here?”
“Earthers need help, yes?” Janis asks.
Led adds, “We have been approved to help.”
“’Approved’?” I query. “By whom, or what?”
They seem to turn to one another and confer silently. They then respond in that odd chorus, again, “The ‘Many Worlds Collective, InterGalactic Council’ sent us.”
I sit back, a bit stunned. I mean, it’s one thing to be confronted by holograms that are not humans and not like anything on Earth. It’s quite a different thing to be told in clear terms that there are many worlds and that they are united in some way.
“Is Earth a member?”
Again, the “laughter.”
Diana responds: “Yes, but Earthers mostly don’t know about being a member, yet. Most of you don’t even know about the Collective, right? You are to refer to it as the ‘MWC.’”
I nod slowly. “Most of us?”
“Well,” explains Led, “This is not our first contact with an Earther. We’ve been here all along and we’ve had thousands of contacts over the millennia. This is just the first one you’ll be allowed to make public.”
“I will be allowed to make public?” I repeat, starting to panic a bit. I picture a media frenzy occurring right outside my rural cottage. Yikes! What is starting, here?”

“ESPE: So, in both conversations, Lama Sangyay steers you away from thinking directly about Epifanio or your relationship (or lack thereof) and right into the nature of your mind. So masterful.
CLARA: Isn't he? I hate those instructions. I do not want to do those contemplations. I want Epifanio!
ESPE [laughing]: Of course you do. How does it feel to want?
CLARA: "Et tu, Brute?"
ESPE: Oh, sí, Señora. ¡Yo también!”

“Fantastic accomplishments seem like something unattainable and everyone doing the extraordinary seems to be unlike you until YOU do something amazing. Then you realize those talented, heroic leaders are not different from you in any important way."
