Book Review: Tin Men by Amalie Jahn

By S.D. Curran

In Amalie Jahn’s The Clay Lion, we were introduced to Brooke and her boyfriend, Charlie. In Tin Men, the narrative switches to that of Brooke’s boyfriend, Charlie. When Charlie’s father, a U.S. Senator, dies in a freak mountain climbing accident, Charlie suspects foul play. Without evidence, however, he feels as though he is wasting his time. As his world unravels, Charlie learns that his mother is not his real mother; his father had an affair, and his real mother has recently died from a drug overdose. Much like in The Clay Lion, Charlie decides to journey to the past to learn the truth about his real mother, despite protests by his girlfriend, who fears the future she has created with Charlie will be disrupted. Despite Charlie’s best efforts not to change the future, he does, and must deal with the repercussions. This is the second book in the Clay Lion series; the third, A Straw Man, was recently released. A beautiful character-driven science-fiction story that relies heavily on science to formulate its plot, but without the overwhelming jargon employed by most science-fiction writers. A must read (After The Clay Lion, of course!)
