In the Third Universe, the Union Jack flies proudly over the entire continent of North America. England is the greatest power in the world.
But another force rules over the crown. It is a mysterious group called the Masters. And their sinister servants, the Bookmen, enforce their laws against advanced technology.
The fires of dissent have not been extinguished, however; the Free Radicals study scientific advances in secret, and Penelope Victoria Steele has joined their rebellion. The beautiful and educated daughter of the provincial governor of Northwestin-Cascadia, she risks her very life to uncover forbidden knowledge, for to defy the Masters means death.
What she does not realize is that her world is not what it seems to be. Nor is time and space.
What did you love best about Blackbird: A Warrior of the No-When?
The protagonist, Penny, is utterly charming. She has an engaging voice and is delightfully fun.
What did you like best about this story?
While the story itself is fun, the fact that it works best when considered as a framework for the philosophical elements makes it intriguing and well worth mulling over long after the story has ended.
Which scene was your favorite?
Penny and Elizabeth's train trip to Tacoma.
Any additional comments?
Aside from a slightly dodgy Southern accent during the novel, the narrator does a wonderful job and does a great job of keeping the narrative engaging and fun.
