Review: Cold Fusion by Harper Fox

Their love is the catalyst that could save the planet…or cost their lives.

As an environmental activist for Peace Warrior, Kier Mallory never hesitated to throw himself into dangerous situations. Until his hotheadedness costs the lives of two fellow crewmembers on an anti-whaling mission.

He finds no refuge in his hometown on Scotland’s north coast, where everyone knows what this son of a broken fisherman has done. Effectively homeless, Mal returns to one of his favorite places—Spindrift, a rustic colony of artist and crafter huts.

Spindrift is dilapidated and empty, save for a lone resident. Vivian Calder, a brilliant but emotionally detached scientist who appears to have done the impossible—mastered cold fusion. A clean, free, limitless source of power.

Despite Viv’s aversion to contact, a fragile bond forms between them, seemingly one atom at a time. Until Mal, determined to redeem himself by revealing Viv’s accomplishment to the world, brings down the wrath of an oil-dependent establishment, risking not only their love, but Viv’s life.

Warning: Contains a disgraced environmentalist and an autistic genius who go from strangers to lovers-for-life in thirteen days. Don’t believe in miracles? We’ll make you.

Cold Fusion is beautifully written but a bit wordy. Kier Mallory is a poet living as a tree hugging, world saving, conservationist, fisherman’s son. Readers see the world that Harper Fox has created from Mal’s point of view. His poet heart sees things differently and he expresses those thoughts and feeling in his beautiful poetic ways.

To the extreme opposite we have Viv. He has Asperger’s and sees thing quite differently than Mal. His contact with others has always been limited. Some of that is by choice and some is from circumstance of his station in life. Everything Viv has known in life changes rather quickly once Mal enters the picture.

Viv and Mal really were good for each other. They each open their eyes and hearts to see things differently from a new perspective for the benefit of the other. Mal makes Viv want to experience new things. See more than just his tiny hidden hideaway at Spindrift.

There’s just a little too much going on here in the end. Readers are given super secret agent who kills people, tries to kill even more people, yet in the end saves a life that he has tried to kill on more than one occasion. As if that life isn’t already doomed enough by murderous oil villains there is illness that has just days ago had a cure discovered for it. Yet even more doom and gloom comes with finding nonexistent family members that were previously believed dead by some and just hidden away by others. To see that things really do have a very tidy overly convenient ending certain bad elements just disappear while others are victim to a  well timed drowning.
