The thing I like best about the Denise Zen adventures is their pace and purpose. They hit the ground running. In a world where reality is more bazaar than science fiction, it’s not easy to engage the imagination time after time, with any sense of comfortable continuity and heart pounding urgency. DZ adventures do just that. They are serial novels, with a thread of good vs evil, us against them and time is running out. It’s a little like running into old friends who always have exciting things to talk about whenever you see them, and you end up spending the day together.
Mylaren, the latest installment of DZ adventure, picks up where Coventina leaves off and is instantly familiar and engaging. The cast of characters, the surroundings and the circumstances come to life in a way that is like waking up to the morning at a friend’s house, complete with familiar sounds and smells. Good work Jamie.
