August 2018Destiny's CircleJeanne Helen CatesAnne Thompson’s life in 1956 was typical of a normal, solid, middle-class English woman. Then, for a lark, she wrote a letter to an American Air Force corporal, David Beckman, based in France, and he becomes a pen-pal. This sets off a chain of events, pushing her on an amazing journey through a life she could never have imagined.

Anne’s friend, Julian Sinclair, charming, good looking and aristocratic, was a successful, journalist/photographer. Anne, at nineteen, seven years his junior, was too young for him to consider having anything other than a platonic relationship with her; fighting against his deep attraction he thinks wise to ignore. They spent their time together, discussing philosophy, politics and the arts. Anne’s parents had made sure their young daughter had been well-educated. Anne, intelligent, strongly opinionated and beautiful, was an amusing companion for Julian. Anne hated the English class system, the poverty it produced. Julian argued it was not just relegated to Britain warning her not only in England is there a class system. This was a source of minor conflict between them.

WoldJeanette has learned how to go from one reality to another, under her own power. She goes, even before a call, to worlds which the Arkenome is attempting to destroy. There is never any explanation for why he does this. Sometimes she prevents the destruction, sometimes she rescues only survivors, and sometimes she fails.

Her companions travel with her, and some die. She has learned super-human skills, which don’t always work. She has destroyed a powerful Arkenome, only to see him replaced by another, who is stronger, more dangerous, more powerful, and more ruthless. She has learned that Arkenomes, and those who want to be, are guided by a super-cosmic intelligence, which will always find another agent if one is lost.

This is the Ecliptor, and she decides to go after it directly, to stop the creation of new enemies, and must somehow get the Arkenome to lead her to it. She and her companions do everything they can to drive him to seek his masters help. She taunts him, evades him, disrupts his perverse pleasure places, turns his slave world against him, pursues him to target worlds and interrupts him before he gets started.

And then, at last, when it seems that she has succeeded, she learns that even the Ecliptor has a master of a higher order. Must she dominate the Ecliptor first? Or can she go directly to his master?

Leslie Ann Drover has the Black Ring, which was given to her by Jeanette just before she was killed. Leslie Ann, much more experienced in the world than Jeanette was, understands that this her Jeanette’s successor. She is younger than Jeanette, independent, self-supporting, and is learning leadership skills on her job. When she is called upon as the new hero, proves herself. And again. And again.

But the tasks, the adventures, become more complicated, the moral choices more difficult, the physical challenges harder, and the leadership more demanding. She rejects the idea that she might be crazy, and knows that these strange worlds and her body shapes are real. But it’s all getting to be too much. She doesn’t know if she’ll be able to go on alone.

She goes, without being summoned, from her apartment door to a world where there is no enemy to stop, in a not-quite medieval public house. There she finds Ikusa, one of Jeanette’s old companions, waiting for her. Together, they meet ever greater challenges until, at last, she has all five of the hero’s tokens.

But she must confront the Ecliptor personally. He was mortal, but is now almost a demi-god. And then she must find and go to the Enemy himself, Kada Barros. She cannot destroy him, and would not if she could. But she has to stop him somehow. Maybe there’s another way….
