In the near future, Tibor Tarent, a freelance photographer, is recalled
from Anatolia to Britain when his wife, an aid worker, is
killed—annihilated by a terrifying weapon that reduces its target to a
triangular patch of scorched earth.
A century earlier, Tommy
Trent, a stage magician, is sent to the Western Front on a secret
mission to render British reconnaissance aircraft invisible to the
Present day. A theoretical physicist develops a new method
of diverting matter, a discovery with devastating consequences that
will resonate through time.
To be honest, I have no idea what happened in this book. I mean. I can give you details and what superficially happened. But I don't know what's going on. Are all the storylines echos of a single event? Multiverses? Retellings of the same event? With that said, while frustrating, I really enjoyed The Adjacent. Don't know what's happening-but it was an enjoyable and puzzling experience. There are also more storylines than the summary indicates...and the Tommy Trent one is a rather small part though magic is a common thread-as is flying-as is photography.
