Tanner is a typical, quiet, shy, non-achiever, happy in his life and his routine, especially "Friday Movie Night", as owner and executive chef of a small restaurant, whereas Adam, his rival for Callie's affections, is the polar opposite. Mega-wealthy, self-indulgent, self-assured and also deeply in love with Callie, Adam is everything Tanner is not. Tanner's world is ripped apart when Callie breaks off their burgeoning relationship to return to her first love, Adam - but there the fun begins.
In two slightly different multiverses, Callie and Tanner play out differing scenarios. In one Universe, Tanner is killed by a hit and run driver and in another, Callie dies by drowning. What really causes problems for the pair, though, is when Callie finds that by using a new drug, called Drift, she is able to actually merge between the two Universes. What will happen when Alpha Tanner and Beta Callie meet up again in one of the parallel universes? Certainly, sparks will fly!
I thoroughly enjoyed Hodden's take on a inter-multiverse relationship and although at times I struggled with who was actually who and in which Universe they currently existed, that is one of the joys of reading Hodden's work. He makes you think, he makes you concentrate and he tells a ripping, good yarn.
If you like quirky, if you like something a little different, then Tom Hodden is the author for you. He has a massive portfolio of essentially quirky and oddball stories. Why not try diving into one today - I did and I've never regretted it.
