In a massive spaceship destined for Alpha Centauri B, with a genesis crew including Zip the telepathic dog, his old friendly nemesis Cramer, and a computer being name Ra (now inhabiting a human form and calling herself Aten), Simon Bank emerges from a hundred-year coma and is hailed as an awakened hero. Stuck with unwanted responsibility, he is forced to try and solve the entire enigma of the universe—a small undertaking—before the spaceship, his friends, and all life on Earth are swatted out of existence by super beings he has accidentally awakened.

Simon’s only hope is to plunge into other dimensions with his mind—into the secrets of the universe’s pan-dimensions—as only he knows how. The fate of all life hangs in the balance as he struggles to prove himself worthy of the Path and the absolute trust his friends place in him. Simon knows all too well that if he fails there is no hope—none at all—for anyone and that includes his best friend, an artificial intelligence computer called Apollo, which he sadly left behind. Besides, Zip would not be pleased, either.

For fans of cyberpunk and classic science fiction, Reaching Angelica is the second book in Peter Riva’s Tag series, the comic, thrilling, and continuing saga of Simon Bank—ex–master system computer wrangler and very unlikely savior of the universe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from engaging With REACHING ANGELICA, Riva returns to the world of THE PATH with the same flair that we’ve come to expect from him. This fast paced novel was well-developed and written. I enjoyed the mix of mythology with reality and science fiction. All together it created a whole that kept me on my toes while keeping my imagination completely engaged. Vibrant characters fill this out of this world tale. They were a blast to get to know. Both returning and new characters were well developed allowing readers to enter the series here or to engage with them as they return to the world that Riva has created. This was a fun & engaging story. Riva kept the pace up from page to page as the characters capture your heart. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
