The Space Between is the first novel by Scott J. Robinson. This is a well-written cross-genre (though mainly a mixture of fantasy and science fiction) story about Kim, who has to try and save the human race and stop a space war with an alien civilization.
Robinson has combined elements of fantasy, science fiction, mystery, thriller, and a bit of humor into a story that weaves in human myths and legends—ancient and modern—with a large dose of a fertile imagination. Some of the science is a bit hard to swallow, but then, good fantasy will always stretch a reader’s ability to suspend disbelief.
Great dialogue and an almost believable description of the multiverse in which Kim finds herself. If this first book is anything to go by, the subsequent offerings in this series will definitely be worth reading. A solid four stars.
