IMMUTABLE, Book 1: Arrow of Time Chronicles by Karen Wiesner is one of the most unique, creative, and captivating stories I have read in a long time. I can’t wait for Book 2. The galactic world she has created is so multilayered that I can easily visualize it as a series or movie. The plot has ongoing surprising twists and turns that keep you guessing as a reader and startling you with new possibilities. At the heartbeat are the themes and characters struggling with good and evil, love and rejection, broken dreams and hope; ends, new beginnings, and the unfathomable unknown cloaked in extreme danger. Get ready to leave the earth we know behind and travel into a future expanse beyond our imagination.

Karen Wiesner has created an absolutely fascinating future with believable characters, interesting technology and a stunning plot. I can’t even begin to imagine how much time it took to do all the research, build the world and flesh out these amazing characters. The author must have some kind of superbrain, but I’ve been suspecting that for quite a while.

4 1/2 Stars!
As always, Karen Wiesner shows her wonderful talent for storytelling. I have never known her to write a (space) science fiction tale before; however, she has done a fantastic job on this one. Nothing seems forced or rushed. Everything is explained thoroughly as tensions slowly build. I was hooked from the beginning until the very end. I am especially intrigued by the Vreah species and hope to get a glimpse of their world someday. As for how this story is written, it is told by following several main and secondary characters. Each chapter begins with the name of the character it will be following. This is a terrific beginning to a new, four-book series and I am looking forward to the next book that will be titled INEVITABLE.

This novel grabs you by the throat! While it’s far from the first time Ms. Wiesner has switched genres, I was fascinated with the crew about the Aero seeking a home among the stars while Earth is healing. I liked that Raze and Tori had been friends all their lives and they couldn’t imagine not being together. I fell in love with the clumsy Astoria, who tripped over her own feet and injured herself almost on a daily basis, and how Raze loved her anyway, despite a distraction with the Vreah ambassador. The story is complicated by an alien race who wants to enslave everyone in the galaxy. Wow! Now I must read Book 2!
