Review: Hedgeland

Hedgeland, an urban fantasy of time travel. Dr April Neuland, a Professor of Ancient Languages turned non-fiction writer, has been plagued by dreams all her life, dreams of her past life in the Otherworld. Meanwhile, in a parallel dimension of April's past and Caridwen's future, Worthing, a Future History Professor, has allied with the Military to access Future Internet communications and use new technology to influence April to write an ebook novel revealing where she, in her past life as Caridwen, hid the Kiste, a device to travel through time and space. Hedgeland weaves all three time/space frames: Caridwen, Worthing, and April. Hedgeland is the first in the Hedgecraft Sequence, but is a fully self contained novel with no cliff hangers.


Hedgeland is an interesting, original science fiction story. There are 3 main characters: Caridwen, Worthing, and April. This is a complex and thought provoking book that deals with time travel, parallel dimensions, and reincarnation. With each chapter, the story shifts from person to person. I have to admit that I thought the book was a bit confusing. I think I could benefit by reading it again.

It's a very well written story and the characters are likeable. If you're looking for a fairly short read (200 pages) with an imaginative multi-layered plot, then this is the book for you!
