Timothy H. Cookabout this book: After the book, Laminar Flow, ends, we find nurse Judy Morrison searching for answers regarding the disappearance of her colleague, Dr. Robert Gilsen. But she finds herself pulled toward this scary new world, in which she discovers chaos, danger, and opportunity. Further, she is told that Master Robert is here on another part of the island, adding to her sense of purpose. Meanwhile, Robert is brought across the island to the castle of the earl of Shepperton, whom he finds to be desperately ill, and probably will die. But Craycroft is expecting this healer, and anticipates that Robert will use his powerful magic to heal the earl.
As this is being played out, the threat of a plague still haunts the island. And now we find that there are villains who want to control the island's power. And heroes also emerge, as we are headed into a struggle for power that may have unseen consequences, even down the pages of history.
Again, we find the man of mystery and power, Drachma, who is playing a dangerous gambit, as the man who brought Dr Gilsen, and Judy Morrison from their world to his.
In this volume, I let loose the fantasy which is merely hinted at in Laminar Flow. But beware, there is another volume yet to come - Turbulence and Restoration - which should be arriving soon.
And a word about the titles. The titles of all three books come from the world of echocardiography, and its ability to describe flow states. Laminar Flow describes the smooth flow as seen in the arterial and venous systems of the heart. Coaptation refers to the coming together of structures (such as heart valve leaflets). Turbulence describes the brisk and chaotic flow seen through narrowed valves, before returning to laminar flow downstream.
