Despite formidable obstacles, Orah and Nathaniel found the keep and revealed the truth that the vicars had been keeping from them. They crossed the ocean seeking the descendants of the keepmasters’ kin, hoping they will have the answers they seek. To their dismay, they discover those they seek are both more and less advanced than expected, and they find themselves caught up in a struggle between two sides—those who worship technology, and those who want to return to a pre-technological existence.
In order to broker peace between the sides, they volunteer to enter the realm of the never-ending dream in which some of the people have been trapped. What they discover has profound implications for the future of everyone.
The Stuff of Stars by David Litwack is entertaining sci-fi/fantasy, with compelling characters in a credible setting. Like good fantasy, it goes where no mind has gone before, and like good sci-fi, makes the reader believe it just might be real.
The Stuff of Stars is the stuff of a good story. I give it four stars.
