I got an email from Ronald Dunn yesterday and it’s got hints as to what he has in store for Rob, the main character of his novel The Wisdom of Solomon. For those that don’t remember, I wrote a review for Ron back in April of this year and eventually went to work helping him promote it. Anyway, I read the email and was so giddy with anticipation that I dropped what I was doing so that I could call him to drop what he was doing and tell him that I wanted that sequel RIGHT NOW!
Knowing that wasn’t going to happen, I told him that I would have to just go back and re-read the first one until he finished. Here’s what he’s told me so far.
Rob has got himself into a mess like no one in the history of mankind. He now has not one, but two monumental problems. First, he must deal with the fact that his 65 year old mental self is now encased in the physical body of his 9 year old self. His brain power, which has been tremendously enhanced by his association with an alien spacecraft, does not work well with his young, immature body. He must now face every situation, including his interaction with his parents and brother, knowing that he must “act his age”! How about school? Can he somehow act normally in front of all his classmates from 56 years earlier. Back then he was known to interrupt class proceedings and get in trouble with the teachers because of too much talking. Now, what will everybody think when he remains mute because he knows opening his mouth will surely provoke much more severe problems!
Secondly, Rob has lost his telepathic connection with Torena, the alien woman who helped him travel back in time to his childhood. His connection with Torena is his only tie to his prior place in the time continuum and he knows, that without her help, he can never be careful enough to keep from changing his previous future; unless he can, somehow make it back to the cavern in Northern New Mexico!
If you haven’t read the first book then you need to click on picture. It’ll take you to his website and you can purchase it there. This is definitely gonna be a humdinger of a ride and I can’t wait. How about you? Have you read it?
