Cosmic Swan by Bill Copeland is a beautiful love story, but not the kind of love story you think. How far would you go to save your home and how far would you go to save your friend? That is what Mark Joff and Kusoom have to find out. Mark Joff is a geologist living in Southern California. They have an earthquake that is stronger than any ever experienced, and they find out there are earthquakes happening all around the world. Mark goes to Tibet because he thinks the source is from the holy mountain there. He meets Kusoom and she tells him about the Cosmic Swan. He has to decide what he believes and then realizes that things beyond his control take him on a journey he never thought was possible.
Cosmic Swan by Bill Copeland was fascinating. I admit I have read and watched many “end of the world” stories and movies, and they all sound alike after a while. But this one had a unique angle. I thought that Bill Copeland did an amazing job with the world-building. I have never been to Tibet but I had no trouble picturing it. I also liked that this wasn’t the usual sci-fi cliche. You know, the hot girl gets the hero and helps him save the world. It was a little like that, but it wasn’t mushy like some of them, which I respected. I loved the characters too; they had good chemistry. This would make an awesome movie. I hope Bill Copeland will be writing a sequel because there were some unanswered questions for me.
