Some of you may remember my review of Erik Schubach's lesbian love story, Music of the Soul.
At the time I asked: "Does there have to be a transformation in a story for it to count as TG fiction?"
I chose to read that book as one, even if the book had become a best seller among Amazon's lesbian readers.
Well, when I read Schubach's Fracture: Divergence there was no doubt. This is a male to female transformation story and a lesbian love story.
We are talking fantasy romance here, with witches, wizards and other magically charged beings.
That has obviously been done before, also in TG fiction. But Erik brings in a new and surprising twist to the genre. There is no body transformation spell. Instead he makes use of a fracture between two parallel universes to throw the mage Alex King into the life of his female counterpart in the other dimension.
There he joins the witches of the Justice Coven in a quest to stop the fracture from widening and destroying both worlds.
As for the love story: His girl friend Jackie is his lesbian lover in the other universe (which takes some getting used to). And she has a very dark secret.
I am amazed by the creativity found in Schubach's universe. This is not your typical copy cat fantasy novel. It is different and exciting. I love it!
