First Review of Worlds Apart

We received our first reader review for our new novel, Worlds Apart. Yes it is escapist fiction as the reviewer points out but as he says that is something we all need right now. A little escape from reality can do us all good since reality sucks a little right now. Click here to read a sample and order your paperback or kindle copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastical Tale Just When We Needed It

I am a non-fiction guy; I prefer my books to be solidly grounded in reality. But, reality has become overwhelming in these days of pandemic and political hyper-polarization. I needed something to take me away, to transport me to some alternate reality – or realities. “Worlds Apart” by Richard and Hinda Burke has done just that. It’s a sequel to their first book, “DreamMap,” which I also enjoyed. It seems to me, though, that the characters who are carried over are more fully realized here, easier to relate to. The newer characters in the Burkes multi-dimensional universe are equally compelling and fun to get to know. The storylines are artfully interwoven as we “jaunt” from world to world, characters searching for missing friends – or magical artifacts – some shapeshifting as they do. “Worlds Apart,” is exactly what I needed to escape from the worries and pressures of this wearisome world. Well, that and some m&ms.
