Book Description
Publication Date: May 25, 2012
Directed by one of their Earthly guides, Aislinn and Dylan venture to the Overlap, an ancient castle situated within a temporal rift where they discover the nature of Shakan’s treachery.

Seeking answers regarding the kidnapping of her parents, Aislinn and Dylan follow one of their Earthly guides to the mysterious Overlap, a temporal rift situated within an ancient castle. There they experience past events that reveal the nature of the rival Nirvanan bloodlines as well as the identity of the traitor in league with the Klatrians.

This is continuing this interesting sci fi series and as I have noted previously each book reads like an episode or installment of the full story.

Netherworld finds Aislinn and Dylan traveling to an ancient castle on a rarely visited portion of their planet, Nirvana. As they explore the castle they discover that it has shifting timelines that ‘overlap.’ One moment Aislinn is in front of Dylan, the next she turns her back and is in an ancient time facing an ancient enemy.

One temporal visit places Aislinn as a viewer of an generations old struggle between related factions for the power of the skull.  An ancient cousin of Aislinn's family is violent and bitter at being denied the royal claim to the skull. His ambition, hatred and bitterness have been passed down to Shakan, the current head Guard of the Nirvanian Council.

Aislinn is also given visions of the twisted, malevolent creatures in the dark caverns of Klatria and visions of another group who seem to be huddled in prayer. Aislinn is directed to collect two gifts.  One is a gift to get to Piper to help save Earth and the other is a elixir of justice to give to Shakan.  Ailsinn and Dylan turn to return to the capital city ready to face the traitor and the next step in their battles to rescue Aislinn's parents..

I am enjoying the intricate twining of the past history and the present conflict in this series.  I also like the excitement as it builds towards the confrontation of the enemies.
The view of the ancient castle:
Bleached by the elements, the castle’s battle-scarred flanks reeked of history and old spilled blood. Location 49.
Dylan and Aislinn are awed at a the view of a magical world of paradise.
“Is this what it’s like on the other side of the looking glass?” Dylan wondered. Location 305.
