Kirkus reviews"In Taddeo's (The Supermarket, 1996) novel, a Montreal homeless man is more than he seems.
Amid the hustle and bustle of a slightly futuristic Montreal...Gabriel leads a nondescript life, but lately, he's tormented by bad dreams and quasi-mystical visions...In a parallel narrative skillfully deployed...Taddeo presents it all with strong storytelling instincts and expert juggling of the many subplots. A fast-paced, thought-provoking spiritual thriller." --- Kirkus reviews
Whole Life Times magazine - Los AngelesThis sci-fi/spiritual novel...set in a future in which military training includes high tech remote viewing and time-travel skills...a rollicking blockbuster of a tale, but truly, the story's background digs much deeper...Gabriel struggles not just to overcome world domination by evil-neo cons, but also to recapture his own past and the source of his powers...New consciousness evolution and mass spiritual renewal join the military tech holocaust, as hell breaks loose...promise of resurrection? read it for yourself." - Mac Graham
