“Like any other human, I was born into a life that I didn’t choose. For eons, I didn’t even exist. Then, in a lickety-split, I took my first breath on planet earth and walked among the earthlings on the island of stars.”

Neala’s surreal story begins in the backwoods of St. Roscoe, West Virginia. Neala’s childhood hero doesn’t have a cape or any superpowers. Aunt Betsy is a humble hero of another kind. She saves the day in a pair of red cowgirl boots and bakes apple pies in the kitchen. Neala’s life is forever changed as she watches the slow and painful death of her Aunt Betsy. Neala’s grief sparks raw emotions and exposes her family’s generational struggle with trauma and addiction. Neala leaves the sleepy town of St. Roscoe in search of transformation. She longs for a love that will heal her wounds. When Neala meets Brick, she is tempted to cross the imaginary line, but she finds herself in a dangerous limbo. Neala’s spooky voyage transports her to the fringes of reality where she flirts with some creepy-crawly surprises, including the crystal ball of space and time and a cosmic jukebox that loves to croon. While a macabre sickness hunts Neala down, she experiments with what it means to be human. Neala’s panic escalates with every page, but could her paranoia be grounded in wisdom?

This novella was beautifully written. Ms. Soleil had a marvellous way with words, especially when it came to capturing small moments in life that could easily be forgotten either purposefully due to how difficult they were or accidentally due to how quickly they passed by. Based on my first impression of her writing style, I’m going to be keeping an eye out for anything she writes in the future.

I adored how realistic the storyline felt. Obviously, the science fiction elements couldn’t happen in our world, but everything else genuinely felt like it was being recounted by Neala herself. There was a time about twenty pages into it that I stopped reading and googled it to see if any of the characters or plot twists were based on things that truly happened. That was how convincing it was!

One thing I did need to adjust to when I first began reading this tale was how much it jumped around from past to present and from one topic to the next. While it did require a little bit of patience in the beginning as I grew used to it, there were excellent reasons why it was written that way. I’m glad I relaxed into the flow of the scenes and allowed them to take me where they wanted to go.

Neala was a loveable and relatable protagonist. Her social anxiety and tendency to put herself down for making the smallest errors in life gave me the urge to hug her. If only she could have seen what a kind and wonderful person she was! She was so much harder on herself than anyone else would ever be. More than anything, I wanted her to realize that and not worry so much. Honestly, she was miles ahead of where she thought she was in her personal development.

Limbo Jubilee was truly delightful. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
