The Librarian, A First Contact Story – Book Review

A fresh new voice in First Contact science fiction.

Jane and Nick have been married over a decade. They are comfortable in their routines and they trust each other implicitly.

Jane is at home watching a movie while her husband (a sociologist professor) does a day hike in the mountains near Seattle. He’s late returning home and Jane is starting to worry.

She is unprepared for the knock at her door. A man in uniform tells her that she has to come with him immediately. It concerns her husband.

Nick has been called. Suddenly, he’s a lot more than he ever imagined. It is imperative that he speak to Jane before he answers that call, even if it is through a hazmat suit and a thick wall of glass… His time is running out.

Arzú gives her story a conclusion that is as surprising as it is pleasing.  It’s a short but satisfying read. And it’s a great introduction to this author’s writing style. If you’re like me, you’ll follow her and look forward to what ever she writes next.
