McCleod’s fourth trip to the world of the Fringe should be a fan favorite: It returns to Windmere and the story of how and why Overlord gave up slaving. Unfortunately, this is a story without an arc. Each conflict is resolved quickly and easily, only to move on to something else, making the book feel as if it will never have an ending. Repetitive symbolism and language weigh the story down further, and the extended delayed gratification of reconsummating Duster and Diane’s relationship feels forced.
Duster Jennings has made a new life for himself as the right-hand man of Michael “Overlord” Parker on Windmere. But he can’t forget Diane, the woman who betrayed him and left him for dead. Taking his life savings, he leaves Windmere to have his memories erased and start over. There’s just one problem: Diane is the “stripper” who’s supposed to remove his memories. Now he’s out his life savings and stuck on a ship with the woman he’s been trying to forget. (SAMHAIN, Apr., 288 pp., $16.00)
