Publisher’s Description: As the General, a legendary steam engine from the American Civil War, disappears into the distance, Petra and Kipp join a small group of determined men in pursuit as The Great Locomotive Chase begins. Petra and Kipp are reluctantly pressed into service as mentors for a new pair of travelers, Peter and Elani. The young duo shares the talents of their advisers in that they are telepaths who can form a bond that enables time travel. But they are, after all, very inexperienced. It falls to Petra and Kipp to train them in the way of their species. To the average human, Petra appears to be a young woman while Kipp masks his true identity in the guise of her canine companion. But they are, in reality, highly skilled investigators in pursuit of past mysteries

Review: This was one of the most boring novels I have read in a long time. It is not only boring, but repetitively so. Yeah we get it, you and your dog are completely bonded and have this connection like no other…blah, blah, blah. Every chapter or scene is this smug rendition of dog on gurl  connectedness. WE GET IT, YOU BOTH ARE SPESHUL!. Additionally, the first part of this novel goes nowhere. Cleaning yards, going to a hospital, dirty dishes etc. Jeez, really? I get that in everyday life, I don’t need to read about it.

I am sure the novel picks up somewhere but I don’t give a frick. DNF.
