Review: Three Great Lies, Vanessa MacLellan
by Eva L. Elasigue
Three Great Lies is as though a single tourist stumbled through the stargate, finding herself mixed with the destiny of the monstrous and magical. Once joined, they attempt to find their ways through a world differently strange to them all – one from the past (Abayomi, the mummy), one from an alternate future (Jeannette, scientist), the other from the mystical realm of the gods (Sanura, cat-headed) – each with an unknown destiny they must solve. Cleverly characterized with a strong atmosphere backed by historical research, Vanessa MacLellan’s writing is both entertaining and thought-provoking.
