Review by Agnes Dee
Exchange starts with a seemingly ‘normal’ disaster. Sharon Mack, an average citizen (or at least she seems so at the beginning of the book) is conscripted by the military to help other citizens deal with the situation. The military is well-practiced, and as the story first unfolds, we understand why: a sphere-shaped piece of our world has suddenly switched places with an alternate reality.
As with any disaster, some people take advantage of others. So it is with Sharon’s husband. He has kidnapped their child, and taken her across the border into an alien world. Like any other strong-willed heroine, she pursues.
Sharon proves she is much more than she first appears, as she deals with nature that is far more untamed than our own world, and with those who see the alternate world as an opportunity for lawlessness, or for some even more mysterious reasons.
Dale R. Cozort has really done his homework, describing an ecosystem with a variety of interesting animals that present various degrees of danger. The wilderness has also given society’s criminal element a license to really get nasty, and Sharon can never know, until the end of the book, who to trust.
