Parallel Lives


by Karen Klyne

When Kaitlin Hewlett-Grace crash lands her little plane in a field, she has no idea what’s in store. She wakes to find herself in a strange land among strange people. A worm hole in time has sent her to a place similar, but most certainly different, from her own. The women-only community lives a simple life and Kaitlin, used to all the finer things in the twenty-first century, has a steep learning curve ahead of her.

Sexy and serious Tannus, Chief of the community, knows two things: her time is limited, and Kaitlin is meant for her. But Kaitlin isn’t about to love someone because of a prophecy in a world she doesn’t belong to, and Tannus must prove herself worthy of Kaitlin’s love. Berran, Tannus’ twin sister and her opposite in pretty much every way, would do just about anything for Kaitlin’s love…except betray her sister’s trust.

All three of them must come to terms with what Kaitlin’s presence among them brings to light. And when there are life and death choices to be made, they must be made with the knowledge that there is far more at stake than heartache.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Not my genre
    “I had met the author so was intrigued to buy and read her first book, though it is not my kind of literature. (I could not contemplate a world entirely without men!). But I found it a gripping story, with a great cliff-hanger ending to entice the reader to look for the sequel. The characters were strongly drawn, the parallel worlds, set in the same area, were convincingly different, except for the strangely similar contemporary language . An interesting new author.” Amazon review.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Debut!
    This was as brilliant debut novel!

    “A mix between historical and futuristic time travel, this story focuses on the arrival of ‘stranger’ Kaitlin as she finds herself in a parallel world where she is met by the community of women with curiosity and mixed emotions.

    The wonderful comparisons between worlds and complexity of the building relationship between Kaitlin and Tannus, but also Tannus’ sister Berran brings an interesting mix to this story, drawing the reader in and keeping them intrigued from the very start. A lovely story that also sees Katilin combing the fragments she still has of her old life with the new, creating a magical feel to the wonder of the reaction to such revelations from the women who she now lives with.

    I am very much looking forward to seeing what more this series will bring, and thoroughly enjoyed this brilliant book! Highly recommended for anyone who wants to try fantasy with a twist!

    I received an ARC of this book from Global Wordsmiths in exchange for a fair and honest review.” Amazon review

    ‘Parallel Lives’ is a exceptionally well written story of love, personal discovery and passion. I adored it. When Kaitlin Hewlett-Grace crashes into a parallel world she not only has to get used to life on a very different level but she meets a woman who is convinced that they are destined to be together. Tannus is the Chief of the women-only society Kaitlin has entered and believes a prophecy has foretold their future together. What will Kaitlin have to say about this when she finds out? Will she ever be able to settle in this new world?
    Karen Klyne has a very impressive turn of phrase, one that is irreverent and wicked and conjours up just the right image. Her world-building is deftly done and made me want to know more. I didn’t want to put it down! There was a very sensual element of desire under the surface, a sexual charge that was so enticing. Kaitlin was exposed to a life and to feelings new to her. How she dealt with them kept me enthralled. Tannus was strong on the surface but I enjoyed seeing her vulnerability as her feelings for Kaitlin grew. It was an excellent story, very emotional at times and I literally can’t wait for the next one in the series.
