3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Concept, 26 Nov 2009
This review is from: Crucifix Lane (Paperback)
Kate Mosse is best known for her epic historical novels; Labyrinth and Sepulchre - both of which I loved so I was intrigued to discover that she had written a science-fiction novel set in the future. This was written back in the early nineties and the 'future' that the story is set in is 2008.

This is not just science-fiction, but a thriller and something of a love story too. The story centres around Annie - a girl from the 90s who is catapulted into the near future. Set in a London that Annie hardly recognises, that is on the verge of apocalyse, where nature is being abused and ordinary people live in swamps alongside the Thames.

The story is quite suspenseful, the characters are well written, although not terribly likeable and some of scientific facts are a little hard to follow.

All in all, I found this a good read. I enjoy Mosse's historical novels more, but this is a good crack at science-fiction with a definate female perspective.
